Persic at Auckland, dressed overall to celibrate Waitangi Day, 6th February 1961.
It was at Waitangi in 1834 that the Marori Chiefs chose the United Tribes flag that was later generally known as the Flag of the Southern Cross as New Zealand's first national flag. The current NZ flag, the blue ensign with the 4 red stars was adopted from 1840, allowing the Southern Cross flag to be used by Shaw Savill as their House Flag when the company was founded in 1858.
This beautiful design is painted on Persic's bow and is flying from the jackstaff.
I believe NZ is considering a change of their national flag, it would be nice if they went full circle and took up the original choice again.
