Nice...but it being NZ and all, no cheeky sheep flag or Xena Warrior Princess Captain? Don't give me that excuse that Lawless is not available. For all we know, she is probably playing the game.

I was hoping for a kiwi flag/patch to mark the occasion of the founding of a nation.

I want the black kiwi symbol on the funnel of all my ships thank you Happa. If you google an image of say HMNZS Waikato a NZ frigate active in the 70's you will see that black kiwi on the funnel. It was on all the NZ Navy ships I served on in the day.

Hi WG

As a Kiwi, a patch or flag like all the other national day missions would have been nice!

Free goodies are always welcome but like some others said, something specifically Kiwi like a flag would have been nice and more appropriate?

I was going to suggest a Flag with Gum Boots on it, but I thought most wouldn't get it.

..And you should hear the Iwi's screaming over the unlicensed use of Moko (facial tattoos) in that other game.  WG is correct to stay away from Maori issues as someone (usually Maori) will complain in the news.

As a FYI - Maori are not native, by their own history they arrived in NZ about 500years before the colonials.

Good point.  Almost 100% agree.  Everything Everywhere came from a central point.

 

It all started with the Big Bang!

Careful Bud. 

Personally, I like a funny joke or 2.   But some people have no sense of humor. 

 

Recently Watties (tomato sauce) did a campaign that played on Maori words.  The ads got removed because certain words weren't spelled correctly.   

The ironic part is the person who complained/campaigned owns a Fish and Chips shop called 'Fush'.   As google translate fails to decode 'Fush'.  I believe this is supposed to be 'Fish'

Oh - and FYI.  Speaking of Haka, try this from Canada

Thanks WG and Hapa_Fodder.

It's nice to see NZ getting a mention with our national day, Waitangi Day.

Shame no patch or flag but maybe next year?

It did take some time to get the ANZAC flag in game so time will tell.
