The 1928-1994 flag of South Africa, sometimes called Prinsevlag, was an equal horizontal tricolour of orange, white, and blue. In the centre of the flag was an emblem consisting of the flags of the United Kingdom, the Orange Free State (in its vertical position), and Transvaal.


Despite the flag's origins pre-dating the National Party's ascension to power, the presence of the three little flags in the middle was internationally perceived as being an implied endorsement of apartheid. [2]
