New Zealanders have begun voting in the second stage of a referendum on whether to change their national flag.

They have until March 24, to send in a postal ballot choosing between the current flag and an alternative called Silver Fern, which won a previous vote.

The exercise has been controversial, with many criticising the hefty price tag and shortlisted designs. PM John Key says the current one looks too similar to Australia’s and it is time to remove the Union Flag emblem.
