Subtitle: The History of South African Flags
Author: A. P. Burgers
Publisher: Protea Boekhuis
Hardcover, 17x24 cm, 442 pages, throughout illustrated, English
The first ever of its kind, this book deals with the rich history of flags in South Africa. As flags are used as a symbol for a particular identity, this history is set against the backdrop of the 500 years since Dias discovered the southern-most tip of Africa to the era of Mandela. During this time, flags have played both a divisive and unifying role in the country’s politics.
Apart from examining the history of national flags of South Africa, this book is also a handy reference of the numerous other flags flown in the country, including military and international flags. The flags of neighbouring countries are also discussed. In addition, flags used during the Anglo-Boer War are described and illustrated.
The South African Flag Book is also a convenient reference source on the science of flags (vexillology) and provides an overview of the development and growth of this new and exciting discipline. It provides information on the Rules of Respect, flag etiquette, flag design and the use of flags in general.
