This flag was hand-made by Peter Mitchell. It was flown by HMNZS Canterbury at Mururoa Atoll in July 1973, during French nuclear testing. The flag was also flown briefly as Canterbury sailed both in and out of Auckland on the deployment to Mururoa. ‘Norm’ refers to the prime minister at the time, Norman Kirk.
