New Zealand selects 40 designs for new flag

New Zealand has published 40 designs, one of which could become its new national flag.

Prime Minister John Key first mooted the change last year. He called for the Union Jack to be removed as it represents the country's colonial era "whose time has passed".

He also complained that New Zealand's flag looks too much like Australia's.
