The New Zealand national flag is based on the Blue Ensign flag of the United Kingdom with four red stars to the right with white border representing the Southern Cross (Constellation of Crux). This flag was designed and adopted for restricted use in 1869 and became the national flag in 1902. There is a two-stage binding referendum on a flag change and is expected to take place in 2015 and 2016. This current flag might be replaced soon!
