Laser Kiwi flag

Laser Kiwi flag

One of the more than 10,000 designs submitted to the Flag Consideration Panel was Lucy Gray’s ‘Fire the Lazer’ (Laser Kiwi). While many entries featured the colours red, blue, white, black or green and iconic symbols such as the Southern Cross, silver fern and koru, Laser Kiwi and other quirky entries, such as Jesse Gibb's ‘Sheep and Hokey Pokey’, captured the public imagination.

Laser Kiwi lived on after being ruled out of the running to become the alternative New Zealand flag. After the second referendum, Radio Live produced a GIF showing Laser Kiwi shooting down a flagpole holding the Silver Fern (Black, White and Blue).

Maybe consider removing the name James from this article as that is considered deadnaming and often hurtful to trans people. This person's name is Lucy.

Hey! According to a post on the Laser Kiwi official Facebook page, the designer of this flag now goes by the name Lucy. You might want to update this article to reflect that.
