"There's no other country that has silver ferns," one student told BBC. Another student said, "The silver fern has been representing New Zealand for over 160 years."

The flag was voted on as part of the country's Flag Consideration Project. New Zealand's prime minister says he thinks the flag needs to be more distinct. (Video via Electoral Commission New Zealand, National)
