Flag of New Zealand (GIF)



The flag of New Zealand (Māori: Te haki o Aotearoa), also known as the New Zealand Ensign, is a defaced Blue Ensign: a blue field with the Union Jack in the canton and four red stars with white borders on the right. The pattern of the stars represents the asterism in the constellation of Crux, the Southern Cross. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 1:2, and the flag was adopted on March 24, 1902.

The shield in its coat of arms contains symbols representing the flag of the country, maritime trade, agriculture, animal husbandry, mining, and industry. Above the shield is a crown representing the country's constitutional monarchy status. The shield is supported by a European woman and a Maori chief, symbolizing the country's bicultural nation history.

The New Zealand flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the globe.
New Zealand is a sovereign island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean. Its capital is Wellington, and its population is about 5.123 million (2021). According to its maritime borders, it borders with Australia and Fiji.
