Wanted: Colonial South African Red Ensign

Postby Eveleal » 02 Aug 2012 19:02

Hi

Trying to locate a vintage South African red ensign flag (in use between 1910 and 1928) and a red or blue ensign Cape Colony flag.

Any help that you can provide in pointing out potential sources would be helpful.

Thanks

Sorry... do you want a physical flag or just information about them? If the first is true, the "For Sale & Wanted" section of the forum (http://flagsforum.com/viewforum.php?f=29) can be more useful. There, you can communicate directly with sellers.

If the last is true, I can show you this flags:
  • Cape Colony - Blue Ensign

  • Cape Colony - Red Ensign
There isn't, officially, a Cape Colony red ensign, but it was used however.

  • South Africa - Red Ensign (1910-1930)
South Africa was, together with Canada and Bermuda, the only British colonies to use red ensigns on land. Versions with and without white roundel were both seem.
