South Africa Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the South African Flag

The flag of South Africa was adopted on 27 April 1994. It marks the end of a very hard era for the country, and comes at the same time as the first non-racial elections held in the country after more than 340 years of white domination. It is composed of two bands, red and blue, and a black triangle bordered by gold at the hoist, all separated by a green band. While the black, green and yellow are a clear reference to the African National Congress (ANC, which was created and forbidden because he defended the country's black majority), red and blue are a symbol of the peoplesí union in South Africa, as it represents the white people, long time oppressor. Symbol drawn by the green band evokes, according to the designers of the flag: "The convergence of the various elements of the South African society which moves forward together and in unison". Other interpretations relate to country's natural wealth, and the blood shed by the apartheid fighters for red.
