Australia confuses their own flag for New Zealand's

funny stuff 26/01/2018

January 26th is meant to be 'Australia Day', but one particular news network didn't realise they were representing the day with New Zealand flags.

9 News in Brisbane were spotted with graphics of New Zealand flags in the background of their 'Australia Day' piece. 

The difference between Australia and New Zealand flag is, of course, the number of stars. Australia's flag has six white stars, while New Zealand's four star Southern Cross is in red.

Meanwhile in Australia, the country is debating whether they drop the 'colonist' Union Jack from the flag, instead keeping their six white stars on a plain dark blue background.

At least if they changed, there will be less confusion for their graphic designers!
