This is the flag I designed last year as an imagined/proposed flag for New
Zealand's South Island. I say «imagined/proposed», because if the
opportunity presents itself, I will propose it officially. A new political party
aimed at greater self determination for the South Island has been formed in
the last couple of months, so perhaps the time to propose this flag is getting
nearer... The flag contains the southern cross from the New Zealand flag, a
link with New Zealand (either indicating that we are part of that country, or
that we have developed from it - depending on the political climate at the time).
The white and green represent the mountains, farmland and forests for which
it is famous and from which it derives much of its income.
