New Zealand decided on its flag

New Zealand decided on its flag
After almost a year of discussions and more than a $1 million spent on the campaign, New Zealanders decided not to change their old Union Jack flag. However, the Prime Minister does not regret the money and effort spent on it.

The Union Jack received 1,2 million votes; meanwhile, the new design initiated by John Key only got 900,000 voted roughly. The officials say that this number may reach a million, but this will still not change the situation.

The opinions on the flag split down the middle throughout the country. Youngsters wanted to keep the old flag, elderly wanted to change it, but they did not like the design Key chose. The flag replacement would cost the country a fortune. Nevertheless, this did not stop the PM. He says he is upset about the choice, tough he does not consider this time to be a waste of time and resources. According to the Guardian, New Zealanders united around the question, and it is always a good thing for the nation.скачать dle 10.6фильмы бесплатно
