Proudly South African with Our South African Flag

At The Bead Shop, we are proud of being proudly South African. As such, we stock a wide array of beads in the colours of the South African flag. We know that is not nearly enough, so we have brought in some fantastic South African flag items. You can add them to your car, your shirt, even your rear view mirror. Put them on hats or other items of furniture and declare your love for your country.

More About the South African Flag:

The current South African flag was adopted on 27 April 1994, at the beginning of the general election in 1994 to replace the flag that had been used since 1928. The new South African flag was designed by Frederick Brownell. 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 is a black triangle from which the arms are separated by thin 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. For South African flags visit The Bead Shop Melville, or visit us online.
