The final four flags have been announced.

The alternative designs were revealed by the Flag Consideration Panel in Wellington this morning as a new poll shows nearly half of voters are open to a change.

The final selection are three variations of the silver fern and a koru design.

They are the Kyle Lockwood's silver fern red white and blue design; Koru by Andew Fyfe; silver fern, black, white and blue; and white and black fern by a Alofi Kanter.

The panel released a long list of 40 flags in August for public feedback. The public will rank the four designs in order of preference in the first referendum in November. A second referendum next March will pit the preferred alternative against the current flag.
