I'm going to dump a few pictures of historic New Zealand.

Depending how the thread goes I might post pictures from other countries/maybe even do a historic fashion thread (as a side note does anyone have any websites with collections of photographs from Victorian/Edwardian England?).

Can someone give me a brief rundown o fthe history of the New Zealand flag? I understand that it's going to be replaced with a Maori flag because Maori are a majority population in New Zealand, but I'm curious as to who came up with the imperialist design.

It's being used as distraction for the TPPA, etc/to stroke the PMs ego. It likely won't change because a majority do not wish it to.

I cannot remember the reasons behind the flag (except it was 'our' design before Australia, as Australia did not federate until the early 1900s) but there is a wikipedia page explaining it.

it's not being replaced by a Maori flag actually. We have to vote between several designs that are proposed, and then early next year the final design will go up against the old one.

Fucking Maoris need to realise that they don't actually have a basis for "treaty settlements"
Between that and all the dole bludgers this country is getting sucked dry.
