Support for the New Zealand flag

Support for the New Zealand flag

The New Zealand Returned and Services' Association (RSA) has led the defence of the New Zealand flag since the 1970s. The flag's value for the RSA is primarily in its connection to service in warfare – the organisation argues that it should be valued and retained because New Zealanders fought under it. This sticker was produced by the RSA in 1998.
