This lesson plan for older teenagers and adults at CEF level B1 and above looks at the symbolism and meaning of flags.

Students will discuss symbolism and meaning of flags, choose the design they like best and give reasons and design a new flag for their country. In part 2 they will consider issues around the referendum – is it democratic and why does New Zealand need a new flag? Is the expense justified?

Hi Sabrina
The link to the lesson plan is working fine here - could you try again? We have been having some technical issues with the site, which our team is working on. One solution might be to delete the cache files on your computer and then try clicking the link again. Let us know if you still have problems.

Thanks,
Cath

Thanks so much for this. I thought it might be a bit out of date but I've been using it with my university groups and it's been working really well.
