The New Zealand Flag

Should New Zealand Change the flag?

Should New Zealand get a new flag? The New Zealand flag, There’s nothing wrong with it and it’s not broken, so why does John Key want to spend a huge amount of money on something we don’t need.

You've heard on the news, John Key wants to change the New Zealand flag, and it’s going to cost around 26 million dollars. What would you do with 26 million dollars? With 26 million dollars you could spend it on repairing places like Christchurch where the earthquakes hit. How about Poverty, it’s a huge problem in New Zealand, why not spend it on people in need. 26 million dollars could also buy resources for schools and work places.

The New Zealand flag has a blue background with four stars representing southern cross and the union jack tells us that we are part of the British colony.
The New Zealand flag has changed a couple of times already. If we've already changed the flag more than once, why do we need to change it again! It looks perfectly fine.

Another reason why we shouldn't change the New Zealand flag is because it represents the people who fought and died for our country.Many people say that their families have fought for our country during war. People who are planning on voting for the New Zealand flag should think about the history. If we change the flag, people say others will fail to recognise our soldiers, who sacrificed their lives for us.

The New Zealand flag is something that represents our country and if we change the flag we will waste a ridiculous amount of money. We shouldn't change the flag!
