Cabinet has approved flying the "tino rangatiratanga" flag as the preferred Maori flag on Waitangi Day.
The flag will fly from Auckland Harbour Bridge, Premier House and other significant sites, Prime Minister John Key and Maori Affairs Minister Dr Pita Sharples announced today.
"Earlier this year I asked Dr Sharples to undertake consultation with Maori about what Maori flag should be flown on Waitangi Day," he said.
"More than 1200 submissions were received and 80 per cent favoured the flag commonly referred to as the 'tino rangatiratanga' flag as the preferred Maori flag," Mr Key said.
