According to New Zealand historian Dr Paul Moon of AUT University ,the bid to change the flag failed because there was no momentum behind the issue, and because the shortlisted options were “insipid and unimaginative”

Voters were asked to decide between the current flag and a black and blue design with a silver fern by postal referendum.The preferred alternative design, by Melbourne-based New Zealander Kyle Lockwood, was chosen from five options last year in the first postal referendum. Turnout was 48.78% of eligible voters.
