South Africa's new flag was flown for the first time in 1994, when the non-racial constitution was inaugurated. It replaced the old orange, white and blue flag that had been in use since 1928. The current flag combines the colours of the Boer Republics (red, white, green and blue) with the colours of the African National Congress (black, green and yellow), and the colours of the Zulu Inkatha Freedom Party (black, green, yellow, red and white).
The African National Congress is seen as the driving force behind the countries convergence and unification, and is symbolized by the "Y" shape. The flag was initially intended as an interim flag, the replacement of which was to be debated at the end of the five year interim constitution set in place in 1994, but common opinion is that this flag will remain as South Africa's permanent flag.BUY NOW
