I actually like that one the most. As a Canadian, I'm no stranger to more complex shapes on a flag... but the Red Peak is just nice. It's simple, unique and memorable.

I wasn't that keen on it at first sight, and a lot of Kiwis still feel the same - "meh". But this link is what changed my mind : http://aotearoaflag.tumblr.com/

Aye the link you posted is what swayed me - there are well presented feelings behind it and it's something that seems to have captured a chunk of the nation so far.

I am still unsure about whether I will vote for a flag change, but with a gun to my head and forced to choose; I'd happily go for Red Peak.
