The Australian and New Zealand flags are similar as they both have the British Union flag in the top left quadrant and have a blue background, but the Australian flag also carries a seven-pointed white star representing the six states with the extra point representing the Territories beneath the Union flag. Each flag depicts the Southern Cross constellation but the Australian flag shows five white stars as the Southern Cross, and the New Zealand flag shows four red stars with white borders.AnswerAdditionally, the four large stars of the Southern Cross on the Australian flag are seven-pointed, five-pointed on NZ flag. Epsilon, the smallest star, is not represented on NZ flag while it's a 5-pointed star on Australian flag.
The smallest star on the Australian flag is simply there as part of the Southern Cross constellation on the flag. This beautiful group of stars is represented due to its prominent position in Australian night skies. The smallest star which appears on the flag with five points is called e Crucis.

Quite simple (1) The NZ flag does not have the "Commonwealth Star" which is an integral part of the Australian flag (this is the six pointed star to represent the six founding states plus Australia's territories, located under the Union Jack) (2) The NZ flag has the Southern Cross coloured red with white borders(rather than white on the Aussie flag) (3) The Southern Cross on the NZ flag only has four five-pointed stars (rather than five on the Aussie - four with seven points and one with five) (Typo on original answer incorrectly said the stars on the Aussie flag were blue - they are of course white
