Kiwis have voted to retain the current flag.
A lot of people I had spoken to also used their vote for the change of the flag as a protest vote. I didn't waste my time on voting the first time which was all about choosing the design of a new flag.
I was one of the 2,124,507 that did vote in the second round (67.3% of kiwis) which was voting to keep the existing flag or change the flag.
The referendum in my opinion turned more into politics rather than actually voting for a flag change,
What a total waste of New Zealand's money. $26 million dollars that is.
