Aardwolf Research Flag Poll Results 2

This poll started on the 13 September and closed on the 29 September. Respondents had to choose their preferred flag from 16 designs 10 consecutive times. The current flag and the four shortlisted flags were present during each choice - the rest were a random selection from 10,292 flag designs available from www.govt.nz.

The purpose of this survey was to find out relative popularity of each design that was shortlisted as well as those that were not. In particular, because each respondent had to make 10 choices when faced with the (then) shortlisted four flags and the current flag, it was possible to compare them against all other designs. In addition, it was also possible to see what the respondents chose when their preferred flag was not available. Click to see detailed standings of the top 100 flags against the shortlisted flags.

The following results are based on 10 choices by 8059 respondents who completed the poll, as well as partially completed responses. Please note these results are not yet weighted. Multiple submissions were excluded.

All designs have been shown at least 23 times, and those that haven't been picked at least once were excluded from further consideration (1,418 designs left). Next, when each design was shown at least 115 times, if a design was picked only once, it was further excluded (810 design left). Finally, when the remaining designs where shown at least 545 times, designs that were not picked more than five times were excluded (625 left).

The final part of our poll now seeks to see how each of the shortlisted flags fare against the current flag individually - roughly following the referendum format. If you wish to partake in this survey, please follow this link.
