     48              What the flag for New Zealand will look like in the 
     49          future has become the topic of much debate in the 
     50          country, now the Prime Minister, John Key, has scheduled 
     51          a binding referendum on the matter. 
     52        </p>

     59          we've put together a web-browser based tool that let's 
     60          you try out your ideas for an alternative.

     78          In the steps that follow you will be asked to:

     80        <ul class="infopage"> 
     81        <li> 
     82          1. Choose a width and height for your flag (not all 
     83          flags in the world are the same size). 
     84        </li> 
     85        <li> 
     86          2. Select a colour palette to work from (modest sized 
     87          with distinct colours recommended). 
     88        </li> 
     89        <li> 
     90          3. Interact with 2D paint application (primed with your 
     91          previous choices) in which you develop your idea. 
     92        </li> 
     93        <li> 
     94          4. See your flag flying on top of the Beehive in a 3D simulation. 
     95        </li> 
     96        </ul> 
     97 
     98        <p> 
     99          We've also added in a flag similarity feature, so you can check how 
     100          similar your flag design is compared with other countries. 
     101          After all, a key impetus for considering a replacement flag 
     102          is that we want to stop people mixing us up with Australia, 
     103          and we wouldn't want to end up with the same situation happening again 
     104          with another country's flag!

     110              with distinct colours recommended).  Then you will 
     111          be presented with a 2D paint application (primed with your 
     112          previous choices) in which you design your flag.
