The N.Z Flag History

Hey everyone I was just thinking that I didnt know the history of the N.Z flag so I thought I would do a post on it. So here we go.
There it is floating softly in the wind, but ho made it who designed it? i am willing to find out.
New Zealand's first flag, the flag of the United Tribes of New Zealand, was adopted before NZ became a British colony. Chosen by an assembly of Māori chiefs in 1834, the flag was of a St. George's Cross with another cross in the canton containing four stars on a blue field. After the formation of the colony in 1841, British ensigns began to be used. The current flag was designed and
adopted for restricted use in 1869 and became the national flag in 1902. It is the British Ensign, with a highly stylized representation of the Southern Cross constellation. It depicts only four of the five stars in the constellation. Each star varies slightly in size. The Union Jack in the canton recalls New Zealand's colonial ties to Britain.
( the blue flag in the corner is the newer flag and the cremey coloured one is the original.

I recalled this information from wikipedia

Supply and demand

Today we watched a short movie on brain pop called supply and demand. here is a wee graph to show that if the product is popular the demand (the blue line) will increase and the producer will have to increase the supply (the red line) The bottom black line is the quantity and the further along the coloured lines are the more of the items you nedd and the higher up the lines go is how expensive/in-expensive they are. If the product is to expensive the producer will lose money and stock beacause the shop owners will have to mark the prices down so that they sell more easily and that people would want to spend their money on that item or product. But then the products are flying off the shelves and everyone wants one of those things then the producer will have to make more which will cost more money then the price will go up for the consumers.
I think I got it pretty well done but sorry if I am wrong anf way off!!!!

He He be happy!!!
