 NewZealand Flag, Flag of New Zealand

The flag of New Zealand was adopted on March 24, 1902.  The flag contains a blue field with the Union Jack on the hoist and a depiction of the constellation of the Southern Cross as it’s seen from New Zealand on the fly.  The Union Jack represents the country’s ties to the United Kingdom.  New Zealand first adopted a flag in 1834 after New Zealand built ships kept being seized by customs for sailing without a flag.
