Flag of New Zealand

Flag of New Zealand

At first sight, the flag of New Zealand reflects its colonial past. Both Union Jack flag in the upper left corner and the blue background point to former ties to the Great Britain. Four red stars with white framing symbolize a constellation of the Southern Cross, which dominates the sky there. The same motif can be found on the Australian flag, so it highlights the fact that both countries are located in the Pacific Ocean in mutual geographic proximity. Officially, the blue color expresses blue sea and clear sky in the vicinity of New Zealand. The flag was adopted on 24th March 1902, but it was already designed as a naval flag in 1869.
