Red Peak’s inclusion in the flag referendum may help save the referendum process, says ACT Leader David Seymour.
“The South African and Canadian flags both emerged from outside those countries’ original flag processes to become cherished icons, something similar may be happening here.
“The Government is committed to having a referendum and adding Red Peak will mean many people who felt alienated will now be able to get behind it.
“The Prime Minister has made the right choice for the country here, credit must also go to the Labour Party for being able to drop their illogical insistence on a yes/no vote before the alternative contender is decided.
“However the most important credit goes to all those in the community who expressed their enthusiasm and kept Red Peak alive."
