New Zealand has decided, by popular vote, the alternative flag it will take to a referendum next year. The nation's public will decide in March 2016 whether they keep their existing flag or switch to the Silver Fern (Black, White and Blue) design pictured above.

The government panel overseeing the poll said results were initially "too close to call," according to The Guardian, but all votes have officially been counted and "Black, White and Blue" has come out on top.
