Ban the Old South African Flag

This petition had 85 supporters

As a white South African I feel that it is about time we ban the Old South African Flag!

I am not trying to rewrite our history, but rather to write our future.

The recent public usage of the Old Flag during the Black Monday demonstrations hurt the course by focusing attention away from the desperate reason that people protesting about.

Why is it important that I mention my race; because the call to ban the flag has to come from the white population, as the current government has not banned it because they feel that it may destroy nation building.

The Old Flag is offensive, and if I find it offensive, then can you imagine how the people who were persecuted under apartheid feel when they see it.

It simply has no place in our future, just like the Nazi Swastika has been banned from public display in most countries, so the Old South African Flag should be confined to museums and history books.

Let’s never forget our past, but let’s get together to build a future!
