The national flag of New Zealand is similar to the Australian flag. It has the Union Jack on its left side and has four stars that symbolize the Southern Cross. The blue background represents the South Pacific Ocean. In 1834, the 25 Maori chiefs (natives of New Zealand) chose a flag. In 1902, the current flag was designated as the national flag. The capital city of New Zealand is Wellington.
