How many of you kiwi's know what the four stars on your flag mean and for bonus points the pattern or shape theyre in?

This is not a knowlege quest, I know the answer.

A clue if you dont know might be shipping or sailing in the southern hemisphere and the similar motif on other flags of countries in the southern hemisphere. NO GOOGLING

:P

Thats so easy.... the stars stand for the 4 types of ground transport (Tank, APC, Walker and FAV) and they lead the weary traveler back to the NZ Titan #1 server.....

Cheers
Crazy

Maybe my perspective is getting a little skewed...... :side:

Ermm thats easy ..its the "4 out of 5 stars could do better national emblem"

I always get 4 stars on me reports......they go like this :

" "Te" has shown some ability in tank killing but could do better with his road kill tally : **** out of *****

The marker..usually some prissy Australian..who..like the Americans always has to try and go one up in size to prove something (yes Oggy? wanna say something here ?) will then try and add a 5th star when they can get it

I then get totally pissed ...adopt beserker mode and start singing the national anthem which has a line in it
".......Guard pacific's Triple Star......" and get everyone totally confused



PS that is a bit cheeky to someone who is 6 generations pure New Zealand blood

The answer my friend is
1.do you have access to another type of passport? I dont because all my ancestors for the last 6 generations were New Zealanders
2.can you access your family tree showing the names and dates of birth of all your ancestors as they worked and lived in New Zealand

I'm proud to be a kiwi !!!

Superb, its cool you guys actually have some knowlege of this sort, most people in most countries are clueless :)

I was reading up about how people want the flag changed to get rid of the Union flag, some of the proposed alternatives are damn ugly. I think the best one was the one much like the current one with the silver fern.

I know about the stars because of working with ships and inevitably you end up taking an interest. Sailors navigating by the stars use polaris in the north hemisphere as the most northely reference point, but theres no star equivalent in the southern hemisphere, however in the pic of Acrx the intersection point of the lines was used as the most southerly reference point. Hence the stars use on most flags comes from a maritime heritage :)

ha. Nothing I said was criticism, I was just making harmless discussion.

I wasnt talking about changing the flag, I happen to think its great as it is. I merely commented about all the talk going on about it. I merely said only one of the many alternatives looked like a nice design on its own merits.

Or are there rules about general conversation and free speech I missed :laugh:

All I originally intended was a bit of fun asking about knowlege of the current flag, and I was impressed how many know its heritage, ask people in most countries and they dont have a clue, including where I come from. For instance most brits dont even realise theres a right and a wrong way up for the union flag lol.
