The flag shown in the video here is known as the Tino rangatiratanga flag, and it's achieved its prominence like a flag should - by being popularly adopted. (By Maori, in its case.)

That's what the NZ flag referendum lacks, it having been imposed from on high. It's all very sad.

The Kyle Lockwood black and blue fern flag has (almost) won the first round of the New Zealand flag referendum...

But it's only a sliver ahead of the Kyle Lockwood red and blue fern flag (50.53 vs 49.47), so may lose after all the votes have been counted.

Pity there's not a clear winner, but par for the course for a referendum that's been mismanaged from the start.
