Hey all you Kiwi's out there. Are you all sick of been mistaken for an Aussie while you are travelling. I have a NZ flag sewen to my backpack and every person I meet from England, Europe, the US or even Aussie itself think that it is the Australian flag. I am sick of it so I did some research and found out that there is a website called who are trying to get as much support as possible to change the flag. So register and show your support!!!! Lets show the world that our nation is totally different from the one across the ditch.

Hi Greeny,
I understand your concern, but it might be a waste of time - I don't think the majority of Brits could tell the difference between your accents either, unless they've been to both countries!
Within an hour of arriving in NZ, I'd sorted it out it my head, but I've still not got over being told I had "a big dick out front" of my apartment.
