Flag It! the publication documenting the New Zealand flag debate is now available!

In this years election the first of a two-part referendum was held to determine whether or not a new design was needed. In the case of an affirmative designs may be submitted by the public for consideration. Flag It! is an exhibition touring Aotearoa New Zealand featuring flag design ideas from individuals all around the country and sparking discussion and debate about the referendum.

Depot Artspace initiated the exhibition concept as way for people to voice their opinions and to contribute their ideas about a new flag. The exhibition ran at Depot Artspace, September 6 – 18 and later travelled to Rawene in Northland where it was exhibited at No.1 Parnell St, November 22 – December 14. Different venues around the country are being considered for the next phase of the exhibition for midway next year.

The Flag It! publication documents the different design concepts submitted for the exhibition, the various existing designs and more. It is now available to purchase in print from Depot Artspace, 28 Clarence St, Devonport, Auckland or by placing an order by emailing erin.forsyth@depotartspace.co.nz orders are $10NZD plus shipping with all proceeds towards the next phase of the exhibition.

Flag It! is also online as a reference only E-pub. Enjoy!
