    I love the old South African flag, they were crazy to replace it. The new one ignores the White South African heritage imo. I'd rather they just added perhaps one or two traditional African flags to the old flag.

    I love St Lucia too, a lot of the Caribbean states have nice flags.

    Displaying the old South African flag is a sin worse than blasphemy now. Having said that, I still have a tremendous sense of respect for it. (feeling terribly ashamed) I have grown to like the new flag as well, but it's more a sense of familiarity than respect.

    The idea with the new flag was to not include any symbology or references to the past, hence the fresh design. Did you know that it has absolutely no meaning at all?

    I dont see why you should be ashamed it's part of your history... just because it was flown at not a great time does not mean that flag, or what it represents, is bad.

    Yeah I guessed that, that's why Im not so keen on it. I dont think the current flag looks bad, I just prefer when flags convey a nation's history & culture, but that's just my opinion of course
    Had I been the designer I'd have kept the Dutch-based flag background, and the small Union Flag - both those represent the White South Africans, and the Dutch one should be larger cuz there are more with Dutch ancestry than British. And then they could have replaced the small (what I think are) Orange Free State/Transvaal flags with flags to represent to the Zulu people and the Xhosa people - as the two largest Black South African groups.

    But Im not a flag designer so I dont want you to feel like Im passing unwarranted judgement on your flag, sorry
