NZ flag options flying in Napier

Five NZ flag options fly above the Viceroy Hotel. If you are still pondering which way to vote in the upcoming New Zealand Flag referendum, you can see what the five alternative flags being considered look like flying from flagpoles.

The Viceroy Hotel on Tennyson Street, Napier, kindly agreed to put up the flags, as Napier City Council did not have any buildings which fit the NZ Flag Consideration Project criteria.

The criteria states that the flags are to be treated equally and fairly by being flown at the same time on separate poles in close proximity to each other, so they can be seen from one publicly accessible location.

The same criteria also state the current New Zealand flag cannot be flown beside these ones. However the current NZ flag can be seen outside the Civic building in Hastings Street.

The alternative flags will remain on display until after the first binding referendum, to be held between 20 November and 11 December, which will ask "If the New Zealand flag changes, which flag would you prefer?"

The second binding referendum to choose between the most preferred option and the current flag will be held in March 2016.
