W3 - NZ Flag

This week's Kidsedchatnz is all about the New Zealand Flag. I thought this would be a cool topic as New Zealand is currently debating whether to change our flag at the moment.

Before coming to the chat please watch the videos below and I would also like you to design your own New Zealand Flag or find a design that you like. Be prepared to share your design during the chat.

If you want to learn a few new flags here is a fun game you can play! FLAG GAME


Q1. Why do countries have flags? Are they important?

Q2. What is the history of the New Zealand flag? How did it come about?

Q3. What do the different parts of the current New Zealand flag stand for?

Q4. Do you think New Zealand should change its flag? Why or why not?

Q5. What makes a good flag design? Why are these important?

Q6. Share with us the flag you have designed or your favourite NZ flag design. Explain your design.

Q7. Comment on the flag designs that were shared. Which one is your favourite? What do you like or dislike about them?

Q8. What is your favourite overseas flag? Why do you like it?

Q9. Fun Question! I'm going to post a picture of a flag and the first class that tweets the correct answer gets the Kidsedchatnz mascot sent to them!

Q10. Write a sentence, poem or short sentence using the following words: Cross  Proud  History

See you on Wednesday!


  1. I LOVE this weeks inquiry. It definitely will show us kids opinions toward this too. :-D

  2. I have been dying to talk about this for ages so we finally get to share our opinions and hear others.
