South Africa has become the first nation on the planet to recognize the Pride Flag as an official national symbol. The Gay Flag of South Africa incorporates style design from the nation’s flag, but maintains the prominent rainbow of the original Pride Flag known across the globe. It is now officially recognized and protected by the Department of Arts and Culture.
