South Africa Flags
The South African flag is a symbol for unity, peace and harmony towards a prosperous future. These sophisticated, yet minimal, flags are available in three varieties and 5 sizes for a flag display in any location, event, weather or setting. We also offer a lapel pin with the flag printed on it. See our outdoor, indoor, pins and miniature South Africa flags by clicking on the respective image below.
The South Africa flag features four separate elements that are joined to create a flag resembling the mosaic of the country’s population. It features three stripes, a blue one at the bottom, a green stripe in the middle and a red stripe on top. The green stripe forks in to a Y-shape with two lines that extend towards each corner of the hoist end (left end). The green stripe has two white bordering lines above it and below it. The forking lines of the Y shaped green stripe leaves a triangle in the center colored black. The sides of that triangle have a yellow line as a border. The flag was designed by State Herald Frederick Brownell.
There has not been a formal explanation of the colors on the South Africa flag but it is assumed that black, green and yellow were used to honor Nelson Mandela’s political party, the African National Congress, and that the red, white and blue were taken from past South African flags (Boer Republic Flags). The flag was adopted in 1994 when Nelson Mandela was elected president.
The outdoor South Africa flags come with a header and grommets for easy attachment to an outdoor flag pole and added strength for the hoist end of the flag. The outdoor flags are built for all-weather use with moderate winds. The indoor flags are also ideal for long-term displays. These flags are made of nylon, have a gold fringe and lined pole sleeve to accommodate any parade or indoor flag pole. Use our mini South African flag with our mini flag accessories for great displays. The lapel pins feature an enamel face with a detailed flag graphic and clutch back closure.
