I wouldn't recommend that you change the name.
I would also suggest that you avoid taking the NZ approach, which is likely to lead to nothing but trouble:
Some time back, the Prime Minister of New Zealand apparently mooted that NZ "needed a new/redesigned flag" or something. From this grew an entire organisation geared to handling this complex and crucially important and vexing matter and canvass NZers about their thoughts (maybe even hold a referendum) - "What sort of flag would you like to see?" kind of questions. There seemed to be no doubt but that "the flag was to be changed", but changed to what? - that was the burning question occupyng our thoughts in every waking moment, and sometimes in our dreams, and sometimes felt in the cockles of our hearts, or maybe even in the sub-cockles.
There were debates/discussions and painting competitions organised in primary and secondary schools to get the children painting pictures of what sort of flag they would like to see. This must have been an unprecedented stimulus to the education system in NZ.
Meanwhile NZ Defence forces were involved as well, with submarines and frigates being commissioned and sent out with a supply of alternative possible flags, to pop up alongside the sunny beaches of the many peaceful island nations near NZ in the Pacific, and there they would display the various flags on top of the sub/frigate and ask "Which ones do you like the most?"
, and the crews would carefully note the responses. The startled islanders would point out one or two flags, wondering nervously whether they had selected the correct flags and whether an incorrect response on their part might be the trigger for war or a hostile invasion, or some new kind of Haka, for Kiwis are feared worldwide for their dreadfully welcoming Haka.
Some poor souls fainted clean away in terror as the thought occurred to them that by choosing the wrong answer, they might even be obliged to watch a Haka being performed, with their eyes held open by toothpicks, so that they would be unable to avoid seeing the whole terrifyingly dreary spectacle repeated a thousand times in front of them by grossly out-of-condition and badly tattoed Maori native warriors in sweaty grass skirts, or worse.
However, it turns out from a recent opinion survey of NZers (including many who hail from the aforementioned Pacific island nations) that the majority of printable responses generally fall into three categories:
- 1. Who the heck cares?
- 2. What does it matter?
- 3. There are more pressing matters to address.
Incidentally, of the two rhetorical responses, the latter famously echoes Hilary Clinton, so is not to be sniffed at.
The third response came from a group who felt that the whole flag thing was a silly and harmless diversion to take public attention away from more serious matters that the NZ government was - or was not - addressing.
Some examples were, in order of priority:
- getting the Aussies to finally apologise for their underarm bowling and give their undeserved cricketing title to the Kiwis like an honest bloke should.
- getting the Frogs to finally apologise and make full and formal reparations to New Zealand - and GreenPeace - for Mitterand's having authorised French government forces to commit an act of terrorism, blowing up the GreenPeace ship the Rainbow Warrior as she lay at rest in an Auckland harbour, killing one man on board and causing injury to another/others, and where the perpetrators were subsequently rewarded by being allowed free and promoted by the French government and put on fat pensions.
- getting the Frogs to finally apologise for threatening the NZ PM with massive and disastrous economic sanctions if he didn't shut up about the matter and release those terrorists he had captured (the PM caved - he had to).
- hold a referendum on what NZ's role should be in the proxy war being played out in the Middle East, and especially in Syria, between Russia and its allies, and the US and its allies, and how NZ should work to halt the massive tide of death and human misery this proxy war has caused, which now finds Syria even having to make the first ever withdrawal from the Arctic "Seed Doomesday Bank". If this isn't a theatrical political gesture, then it is Z59.5 (WHO disease number for Poverty) in action, and it is apparently human-caused.
