In a country that’s had it’s ups and downs, we are experiencing a time of incredible national pride here in South Africa. Hosting the Soccer World Cup has been an exciting and unifying experience.
There are lots of South African flags to buy out there, but my daughter Christy and I decided to make an Indie Flag Garland to mark the occasion.
She insisted that I draw the original pictures – and I can’t draw. She then worked her magic with my line drawings of a leaf, mealie[maize], heart, hadeda and agapanthus flower and made them into a pattern, which she printed on recycled paper to become a patterned South African Flag!
