If Te Tiriti o Waitangi (1840) represents an agreement between Māori and the crown, shouldn’t flags representing the two nations be visible on Waitangi Day?

Te Ao Pritchard of Te Ata Tino Toa believes that flying the New Zealand and Tino Rangatiratanga flags alongside each other on Waitangi day demonstrates the partnership between Māori and the crown as agreed to in 1840, as she explains to Maraea Rakuraku in this interview from 2014.
