25th anniversary commemorative edition

Help us document the history of our flag with your special photograph.


Just as the Multi-Party Negotiating Council asked the public in 1993 to submit their designs for the new flag, we are inviting you to submit an original image that features the South African flag, or a representation of the flag, and stand a chance to have your image published in the book Flying with Pride: The Story of the South African flag. 

Provide us with a caption or description of the image in no more than 150 words telling us something about it. Perhaps the image has special meaning for you, or was taken at a memorable event? Feel free to share your story behind the image. All images selected will be fully credited and those photographers will each receive an autographed copy of the book.

Your image should be of the highest quality possible, with a size of no less than 1.5 MB when compressed in jpeg format (roughly 11 cm x 7.5 cm). Larger images up to 10MB in jpeg format, are ideal. We also accept images in PDF, eps and tiff format.
