This article reports on the development of an interactive web environment, backed by a digital library, that supports the creation of new flag designs. Specifically, it supports the user through an iterative design process, guided by principles drawn from the field of Vexillology. The work has been motivated by a legally binding referendum on the issue in New Zealand, planned to occur in late 2015/early 2016.
