The New Zealanders have voted against a new flag. How would you have decided?

In a written vote today, Friday, 56.6 percent of New Zealanders voted against the new flag design with a silver fern. This leaves the old flag with the British Union Jack in the corner. Prime Minister John Key had campaigned for the change, among other things to end the frequent confusion with the Australian flag, as he said.

When is a flag beautiful? Last year the readers of the Spanish magazine “20 Minuten” voted Mexico's coat of arms the most beautiful in the world - countries in which Spanish was spoken naturally had a patriotic advantage. What do you make of it?

This flag represented Switzerland under Napoleonic occupation from 1798 to 1803.
