    Member 12 person Flag consideration Panel appointed to help facilitate national conversation about the flag. 
    • Bio - In 1959, not yet 20, he made his provincial debut against the touring British Lions. All Black honours followed in 1963. In an illustrious career in the black jersey he played a total of 68 matches. He was captain in 18 of the 25 test matches he played for his country. An outstanding no. 8 or lock, he was inducted into the International Rugby Hall of Fame in 1999 and knighted the same year.
      Former All Black great Sir Brian Lochore has urged New Zealanders to be open-minded about the flag, saying it was the first time in New Zealand's history they were able to vote on it.
      Sir Brian is on the 12-person Flag Consideration Panel which yesterday began its public campaign to seek alternative designs for the flag as polls show support for change has dropped.
      Sir Brian would not say what his personal view was, but pointed to changes in flags across the Commonwealth during the past 50 years. Of the 54 Commonwealth members, 45 no longer had a Union Jack on their flag. "A lot of countries have changed. So I guess if I have a view I would like New Zealanders to open their mind and see what's there, and then clearly vote how they feel. Because we haven't ever had a chance at deciding on our flag, here is an opportunity for New Zealanders to have a look. That's all I ask. If it goes back to the status quo, so be it."
