New Zealand prime minister John Key has announced plans for a referendum on whether to change the national flag.
He said he wants a nationwide vote in the next three years.
The nation's current flag depicts the Southern Cross star constellation in red and includes Britain's Union Flag in the top left corner.
Mr Key has said he favours a silver fern set against a black background, but opponents say that would associate the flag too much with sports teams, which often use it, and is too reminiscent of a pirate ensign.
The Maori King has pulled out of a meeting with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge during their New Zealand tour.
His officials suggested the engagement was not long enough to do justice to the status of the royal visitors.
"They were offered a 90-minute slot, that was longer than pretty much any other engagement that they have, and King Tuheitia's people decided that wasn't long enough and on that basis they rejected him attending," New Zealand Prime Minister John Key said in statement.
The Cambridges were due to meet King Tuheitia, a former truck driver who ascended to the throne in 2006, on the country's North Island at Turangawaewae, his official residence and reception building.
The Maori King's office issued a statement which reportedly quoted a senior official who said the monarch was "not some carnival act to be rolled out at the beck and call of anyone, and nor should we be prepared to compromise our tikanga to fit into a pre-determined schedule".

The group, also known as Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, were due to perform with Eminem in Auckland on Saturday.

Border operations manager Karen Urwin said authorities decided to decline visas to six group members after becoming aware of a 2011 incident in Boston in which some witnesses accused the Los Angeles group of inciting fans to attack police officers.
A New Zealand man fought off a shark attack, stitched up his own wound and then went to the pub for a beer before eventually going to hospital.
James Grant, 24, was spearfishing with friends near Colac Bay, South Island, on Saturday when he was attacked by what he believed was a sevengill shark.
The junior doctor was in two metres of murky water and felt a tug on his leg, which he initially thought was a friend playing a trick on him.
He told radio New Zealand: "I looked behind to see who it was and got a bit of a shock. [I thought] bugger, now I have to try and get this thing off my leg."
Grant, who already had a knife in his hand, stabbed at the shark before quickly making it on to the rocks on shore and then stitched up his wound.
He and his friends then went to a pub, where he was given a bandage because he was dripping blood on the floor, before heading to hospital. He was back at work on Monday.
