Honestly, this is amateur hour stuff:
Confirmed: Wrong colour on potential new flag flying on Auckland Harbour Bridge
Officials have confirmed the potential new flag waving atop the Auckland Harbour Bridge is the wrong colour and will be replaced.
“The fabric weight and printing technique used to produce the alternative flag flying on the Auckland Harbour Bridge has resulted in a lighter blue than the silver fern flag eligible voters will consider in the final referendum,” a NZ flag consideration project spokeswoman said this evening. …
Apart from being a symbolic fail of epic proportions, this highlights the fact that the candidate flag isn’t even fit for purpose…
This is a problem with a design that can only be screen printed and not sewn from component body coloured fabric pieces.

If this, as some people say, is because the Lockwood flag has to be printed rather than sewn … what a shambles. https://t.co/QcYKVI6x0k
