Became official: 1902

Description: The Union Jack at the top right of the flag symbolises New Zealand as a former British colony.

The Australian and New Zealand flags depict the Southern Cross constellation as it can only be seen from the southern hemisphere. The New Zealand flag uses red for their stars while Australia uses white. This represents the brightness of the stars seen from each of the countries.
