Gauteng introduction

Pretoria - Witwatersrand - Vereeniging region, also known as the Southern Transvaal, has been re-named Gauteng (Sotho word for "Place of gold"). Up to September 1995 none of the nine new South African provinces have adopted their own flags although one or two have proposals in this regard. There is currently a debate in this country as to whether the provinces should have their own flags or not with the ruling ANC holding the view that the provinces should not have individual flags. Gauteng province has, nevertheless, adopted new provincial Arms. 
Bruce Berry, 30 September 1995

In north eastern South Africa, reorganized from the former south central Transvaal. It borders the Free State, Mpumalanga, Northern and North-West provinces.
Antonio Martins, 30 May 1999


Flag of the Gauteng Provincial Government

The Gauteng provincial government flies plain white flag with the provincial logo in the centre of a white field.

This is not considered the flag of the province, but its use is similar to that of a corporate house flag, being flown at provincial government offices only.
