If this version of the flag existed, of which there is some doubt, the badge would have been on a white disc surrounded by a garland.

 

 

This was a misunderstanding of a 1869 Colonial Office instruction.  It had been replaced in 1874, if not before, by four red stars and letters ‘N Z’ on a white disc surrounded by a laurel garland.  In 1907 the laurel garland was replaced by fern leaves.
