It's time we become a republic so yes I think we should change the flag as well as the anthem. But if we stay the same the flag is fine for me it's much better then the other designs anyway.

Im a Kiwi but we have the same issue here, some people want it changed to reflect our so-called current identity. I dont think either flag should change as our flags are storied and they give a solidarity to Australasia.

I discussed this with my mate today, I said if they were going to do anything, maybe change it a little to reflect the aborigines and the multicultural society we have here...

But really overall....I couldn't give a fuck

You guys aren't a British colony anymore. You should change the flag, and fly your own independence. Just in my opinion.

It's pretty much the Union Jack that people have issue with. Out of all the designs shown above, I like this one the best:



Republican Socialist League 1956- remove the Union Jack and replace with the Commonwealth Star.

I think it's important to keep the flag recognisable. Those green and gold flags look gaudy and cheap. I'd never vote for one like that.
