A data visualisation flag representing the popularity of the New Zealand flag redesign – Red Peak.

A response to New Zealand’s flag referendum and the Red Peak flag campaign.

Red Peak was the leading flag design in the New Zealand flag referendum at one time so I decided to chart its rise and fall by producing a one-off flag design of my own.

I created code to take Google Trends search data for ‘Red Peak’ and visualise this into a new flag, while referencing the original design.

The final output was a 1800x900 flag.

// RedPeaked is available for exhibition & private flagpole tours within New Zealand.
