The New Zealand Flag, New Zealand White Ensign and New Zealand Red Ensign
1. The New Zealand flag is the symbol of the realm, government and people of New Zealand. The royal blue background is derived from the ensign of the Blue Squadron of the Royal Navy. The 4 stars of the Southern Cross indicate New Zealand's location in the South Pacific Ocean. The Union Jack in the first quarter indicates New Zealand's historical origins as a British colony and dominion.
2. The New Zealand Red Ensign was flown on New Zealand merchant ships during both world wars. It is based on the British Red Ensign.
3. The New Zealand White Ensign is flown by ships and commissioned shore establishments of the Royal New Zealand Navy.

Flag and Banner Maintenance
While our high precision sewing and heavy-duty European ink is at the best of the best in the market, the inevitable wear of time will fade your flags and banners. Here are some quick tips to keep your flags or banners in a longer lifetime:
1. Keep out of direct sunlight when not needed - our UV-resistant European ink still fare better without UV rays
2. Ensure there are NO nearby rough walls, poles or plants that will damage the fabric - constant friction may cause irregular tear, as the number one reason for failure.
3. Make sure the flag or banner is setup correctly - push flag to the end of pole tip and tie the cord stopper accordingly
4. Keep your poles for your teardrop or feather banners away from surrounding objects - avoid pole damage caused by collision with other strong obstacles due to wind
5. Not for very windy days - it's a good idea to take down your large banners if wind speeds exceed 55km/h, your small banners if wind speeds exceed 65km/h
6. Wash only when necessary - when washing do not use detergent, rinse in water only, no washing machine.
