New Zealand is holding a public competition to possibly replace the country’s current flag. Over 10,000 designs were submitted and yesterday, four designs were revealed as finalists.

New Zealand residents will vote on a winner later this year and then in March 2016, they will vote on whether that winner will replace the current New Zealand flag.

We take a look at the designs with Charles Ashburner, a vexillologist and head of the Flag Institute in Swansea, Wales.
