Bonus Activity: Now it’s time to start your tour! Curious Kiwi decides to start by taking you on a short tour through downtown Auckland. You stop at the Sky Tower, the tallest building in all of New Zealand. When you look up, you see a huge New Zealand flag on the top of the tower. This flag was created back in 1902. That makes the New Zealand flag 115 years old!
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.
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.
The flag looked really ragged with a green cross as it's background and red and yellow square colours with one Giant red bird. On the flag, there is a pattern of red and yellow on it and a green cross and one giant eagle covering the centre. The thing that inspired me to create this flag was the American bald eagle on the Great Seal which is why the eagle is there. The bird represents freedom like when birds soar across the sky they are free.
