DISCLAIMER: this post is a little late, but it got lost in my drafts!
New Zealand has voted to keep its current flag. The good news is that when they have a vote on this again in around twenty years, my NZL flag designs might stand a chance of getting picked!
I think anti-British opinion or a let’s-forget-the-past mindset are more prevalent in Australia than in New Zealand. Therefore, Australian might well change their flag first — and so NZL and Australia’s flag will no longer be similar, as this was one reason people gave for changing the NZL flag.
