Hundertwasser’s Koru Flag for New Zealand

In 1983 Hundertwasser became a New Zealand citizen and - in appreciation - gifted a design for a second flag to his newly adopted country. His idea has endured and his flag flies in many places today.

Hundertwasser created a comprehensive design manifesto for his proposed flag, giving in detail his thoughts on the importance of flags, the genesis of his ‘koru’ design and even information on how to care for and properly fly flags.
