Description of the flag

In the War Memorial (Wellington), near the old museum site, I saw, among other flags, what I can only describe as a maroon ensign. It was identical to the NZ national flag, only every part that would normally be blue (both the fly and in the Union Jack), was a deep reddish purple.

I'd say it is a regular NZ flag left exposed to sunlight for too long -- but, hey, it looks nice!
