During a protest called ‘Haka at the Beehive' activists replaced the New Zealand flag on a pole with a Maori flag at Parliament Grounds.
One activist posted a video online, supplied to thisquality via news tip, saying that the group of activists were in trouble with security after switching flags.
Security told them that they are not allowed to have the flag on the pole, and further instructed them to take it down.
“These security [officers] said now, that it has to come down. Why can't we have our flag? Our original flag.”

The activist filming points their camera to the official New Zealand flag on another pole saying in ‘disgust' that, “We have to have this flag. No good.”
Parliament was contacted for comment on this situation and this article may be amended in future.
