Honestly I would appreciate more a contribution by the government in sustaining the existing businesses than trying to establish a new flag carrier, which would be probably unprofitable from the beginning and for quite some years. The current economical situation could be improved by proportionally sustain the airlines based on their performances (number of pax, commercial movements, safety records etc.) hence the contribution would be coherent with the dimensions of the airlines and properly smoothed.
