Colonial Ensigns:  Union of South Africa

 

 

 /Swaziland

 

Swaziland did not have a flag.  This was the flag of the High Commissioner Basutoland Bechuanaland and Swaziland.

 

 Cape of Good Hope

 Natal

Transvaal 

 

 

 

 

I don’t think that the Klipdrift Republic flag should be included.  The ‘republic’ lasted for only a few months and was totally unofficial.

 Orange Free State

 /Klipdrift Republic

 Union of South Africa Blue Ensign

 After the flag of the Union of South Africa changed, this flag remained as the Merchant Flag of South Africa until 1951.
