The flag of South Africa was designed in March 1994 and adopted on 27 April 1994, at the beginning of South Africa's 1994 general election, to replace the flag that had been used since 1928. The new national flag, designed by the then State Herald of South Africa Frederick Brownell, was chosen to represent the country's new democracy after the end of apartheid. The flag has horizontal bands of red (on the top) and blue (on the bottom), of equal width, separated by a central green band which splits into a horizontal "Y" shape, the arms of which end at the corners of the hoist side (and follow the flag's diagonals). The "Y" embraces a black isosceles triangle from which the arms are separated by narrow yellow bands the red and blue bands are separated from the green band and its arms by narrow white stripes. The stripes at the fly end are in the 5:1:3:1:5 ratio. #flag #flags #vexillology #vexillogist #johannesburg #captown #africa #southafrica #drapeau #drapeaux #yellow #red #blue #green #black #white #vexillologie #bleu #jaune #rouge #noir #blanc #vert #mandela #nelson #nelsonmandela #apartheid #bands #colours Source: Wikipedia

My island flag reflects the UK zeitgeist. The political mantra runs like this: we’re leaving Europe. We’re taking back control of our borders. The thinking that led us to this point runs like this: our island is our island, my land is my land. I’d not be proud to fly this flag on my island. #MyIslandFlag itsnicethat britisharts british_design #Graphicdesign #Design #vexillology #flags #typography #type

07.17.18 Our company's mission is to improve cities and communities through branding and design. Our executive creative director diegowanrios entered this year's Atlanta City Flag Design Challenge. Below is his rationale for his design. "Above is my first submission for the new Atlanta city flag. I call this "Resurgens" - The red represents the Great Fire of Atlanta in 1917. It also honors those killed in the Atlanta race riots and the city's subsequent role in the Civil Rights Movement. The bright blue represents the Chattahoochee River. It's also a symbol for the cleanliness, strength, dependability, and coolness of this great city. The two white stars represent the two counties that make up Atlanta (Fulton and DeKalb), and the points of the stars represent the twelve council districts. The white stripes represent the building of the Western Atlantic Railroad ~ giving rise to the settlement that became Atlanta. And lastly, the middle yellow stripe is for the International Expo which was responsible for the growth and development of Atlanta. I chose yellow because of its the color of happiness, optimism, enlightenment, creativity, and sunshine. The stripes are placed vertically adopting the horizontal orientation for Resurgens (Latin for "rising again"), which is also the inspiration for this flag's name."
