Images and details of rejected flag designs
The request was refused by Department of Internal Affairs.
From: Ben Moore
Dear Department of Internal Affairs,
I would like to request the flag designs submitted by the public which were (for whatever reason) not accepted and displayed among the suggested flag alternatives on the Flag Consideration Panel website.
I understand there were a number of criteria required of submissions, it would be helpful to have included the specific reason for rejection (i.e. the criteria against which a submission failed) included alongside the submissions' details, as well as any notes made pursuant to the rejection.
For the avoidance of doubt, I am requesting the image files of rejected flag designs, as well as any supplementary details, notes or comments associated with these image files.
To assist me with analysing your response, I also request any briefing materials or guidance around screening which was supplied to the staff responsible.
Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information pursuant to this request.
Department of Internal Affairs
Dear Mr Moore
I refer to your request under the Official Information Act 1982 below requesting:
The flag designs submitted by the public which were (for whatever reason) not accepted and displayed among the suggested flag alternatives on the Flag Consideration Panel website.
The Department does not hold the information you requested. However, I am aware that this information is held by the Flag Consideration Panel. I am therefore transferring your request under section 14 of the Official Information Act.
The Flag Consideration Panel will respond to your request directly in due course.
