someone has just made me aware of possible copy right infringement with regards to my bunting idea,
I would hugely appreciate it if you have any knowledge on whether it is ok for me to scan them and make them into flags,
the images are all from 1950's and 60's books,
thanks so much!

I can't comment specifically on the laws in New Zealand, but the short answer is yes, you're probably violating copyright laws. Here's an overview of the laws here in the states, which are probably similar to the laws internationally. http://copyright.cornell.edu/resources/publicdomain.cfm
