a red, white & blue thursday


so we could have gone down the captain america route with todays red, white and blue post, i mean joey's got so much built-up propulsion and super powers he's about ready to explode...


but we thought that since all the 'yanks' were gonna pull out their patrotic card this week we would throw in our nationalism card - you see they've been wanting to change our new zealand flag for a while now... some people think its boring...


so i sat wrapped in our so called 'unoriginal' NZ redwhite and blue flag and pondered change... 


the 1974 commonwealth games logo is pretty cool but it is redwhite and blue, too patriotic?...


i think ralph hotere was on the right track when he produced his black union jack series, now we are talking, black is cool...


new zealand has already been gifted a flag done by that super famous dude hundertwasser, so why waste it?...

suddenly it all seemed rather obvious...

i am a 'muse' and i am off to find a flagmaker...


next week blue has declared it can be anything... is that something, nothing or everything i wonder?

Great post...and now as a Yank I feel like I should go change my True Colors post this week as I am speechless that you would guess what I did before you had a look. ;)
Loved it, had me chuckling. Best wishes for a good find in the flag department.

You have me giggling away as usual!
But a very deep thinking post, and you make a wonderful flag muse.

Love, pats & pets
