Klein Vrystaat flag

[Klein Vrystaat (South Africa)] by Ivan Sache, 28 Apr 2000 See Also :

Klein Vrystaat

From 1876, a number of Boers bought land from the Swazi king Umbandino. A formal government was formed in 1886 when a Constitution was adopted. Klein Vrystaat ('Little Free State') was incorporated in the ZAR (South-African Republic) on 2/8/1890.
The flag of the KV was the same as the Transvaal Vierkleur ('Four-colours') - horizontal red-white-blue with a vertical green stripe near the hoist. The width of the green stripe was equal to the height of the horizontal stripes in the KV flag and 1.25 times this height in the Vierkleur.
Use: 'National' flag, 1886-1890. Proportions: 3:2. Accuracy: High
Source: 'Sovereign flags of Southern Africa' by A.P. Burgers (SAVA).

The Klein Vrijstaat left its mark on the map: the notch in the south-western border of Swaziland is all that's left of that state.
