Winter learning journey: Bonus Activity

Last year, the Prime Minister of New Zealand suggested that we should replace the flag with a new, updated design. He invited everyone in New Zealand to come up with their own flag design and submit it.

For this activity, it is your turn to design a new flag. Use any drawing programme that you wish. I would recommend the Flag Designer website. It allows you to create a flag in three easy steps. When you are done, take a screenshot of your flag and post it on your blog. Here is an example:
To earn full points you must describe the flag, in words, below the picture. Please tell us what is on the flag and what inspired your design.  

I chose the seven stars because it is related to the Matariki.
I chose a kiwi because we are kiwis.
I chose green for my background because it represents Nature of New Zealand.
I chose the ferns because that's the symbol that our Netball team uses.


  1. Hi Francesca,

    You have had heaps of ideas about how to design your flag, it is great to see that you have explained your ideas clearly - well done!

  2. Kia ora Francesca,

    I completely agree with Ms Stone. You had so many great ideas for this activity. I love the way that you incorporated them all into your design! Awesome work.
