The flag referendum officially started on the 21st of March, and was set to end on the 25th. However, at the deadline only 7 of the total 23 citizens had voted, so the government decided to move the deadline to April 1.
The government wanted every citizen to vote, as this would be a big referendum in New Eiffel. Better advertising was also put in place.
The referendum lasted until 13 April, before the government decided to end it. 19 citizens had voted by 13 April, and the winning flag was the current one. It got 12 of the total 19 votes, or about 57.89%.
From the ten flags that were nominated, only five of them had received at least one vote.
Prince Zed I announced that he was not surprised, as a lot of the citizens claimed to love the flag.
Here are some statements from citizens who had voted for the current flag:
Black Wolf: “It’s simple and unique, so I like it.”
Cryphonen Redder: “Although it’s not my favourite flag, it’s still interesting, and the colours go alright together. Plus, all the other flags were [expletive] anyways.”
Kim Cha: “The colours are nice”
