British Empire and their colonial rules/flags

This is the apartheid flag – where it started, long before 1900 – segregation started with the British empire under their control and flag.   Dis waar apartheid begin het, by die Britse ryk onder hulle Vlag. (vlae – let wel, daar is meer as een vlag)
The Flag of the British South Africa Company was the flag used by the British South Africa Company (BSAC) and Rhodesia under company rule. It was adopted in 1892 and was used until 1923 when the south of Rhodesia voted to become Southern Rhodesia and the north was surrendered to the Colonial Office to become Northern Rhodesia.    Under this flag they created Reserves and Crown land – SEGREGATION AND APARTHEID started under British rule of Lord Shepstone 1854.  The flag remained as the Company’s commercial flag until 1965. The flag consisted of a British Union Flag with the Company’s logo of a lion and tusk on a white circle in the centre with “B.S.A.C.” underneath it.

The British South Africa Company headed by Cecil Rhodes received a royal charter from Queen Victoria to create a new British colony in Africa.

The Pioneer Column of the BSAC set out and founded Salisbury in 1890.   The BSAC flag they had ordered to be made did not reach South Africa from England in time before the column set off.   As a result, the Union Flag was raised instead, although it had been suggested that they use a white flag with the letters “BSACo” on it.    The BSAC flag eventually arrived in the newly-established Rhodesia in 1892 and was first raised over Fort Salisbury.  In 1893, it was raised over Bulawayo, following the Company’s conquest of the Matabeleland.

The British South Africa Company was established in 1889 to explore and encourage colonisation across south-central Africa. The Company developed and administered the territory Rhodesia, now known as the Republics of Zimbabwe and Zambia. They had control over the area until 1924, when Northern and Southern Rhodesia were handed over to settlers and the Colonial Office.

Flag of the Governor-General of South Africa (1931-1953)

The Governor-General of South Africa flew a flag with the Tudor Crown Royal Crest on a dark blue field from 1931-1953 and thereafter with a St. Edward’s Crown Royal Crest from 1953 until 30 May 1961.

The crest was between two scrolls inscribed with the name of the country in both official languages, “Union of South Africa” (English) above and “Unie van Suid-Afrika” (Afrikaans) below.

WHO MADE THE RULES EVEN UNDER THE “UNION OF SOUTH AFRICA” – LEGISLATION FROM LONDON?

A plain Union Jack was flown daily from sunrise to sunset on Government House, the residence of the Governor-General.

In 1928 the Nationality and Flags Act established the practice of flying both Union Jack and South African Union Flag on Government buildings in the Union of South Africa. King George V did not want his personal representative in South Africa to fly any flag except the Union Jack.

General Hertzog, the South African Prime Minister, was prepared to accede to the King’s wishes on this point, but it was felt that there were bound to be protests from some members of the Assembly if the South African Union Flag was not flown with the Union Jack on Government House. It was suggested that if the Governor-General had a special flag, instead of the Union Jack, there would be no obligation to fly the South African Union Flag alongside it.

Cape Colony – British empire

https://www.crwflags.com/fotw/flags/za-cape.html

A flag of the Governor of the Cape of Good Hope was taken into use on 12 May 1875, on the occasion of the laying of a foundation stone of the House of Parliament in Cape Town. The Governor’s flag followed the traditional pattern of having the colonial arms in the centre of a Union Jack surrounded by a green laurel garland.

“For Arms Gules a Lion rampant between three Annulets Or, on a Chief Argent as many hurts each charged with a Fleur-de-lis of the second, for the Crest – On a a Wreath of the Colours the Figure of Hope proper vested Azure resting the dexter arm on a Rock supporting with the sinister hand an Anchor Sable entwined with a Cable also proper, and for the Supporters On the dexter side a Gnu and on the sinister side an Oryx (gems buck) both proper, together with this motto “SPES BONA”.

The supporters in the arms are a Gnu and an Oryx, which hold a shield consisting of a gold lion between three gold rings.

A white panel containing three annulets appears in chief and the whole arrangement is ensigned by the Lady of Good Hope holding onto a rock with her right hand and grasping a fouled anchor with her left.

The motto on the ribbon reads “SPES BONA” which translates as “Good Hope”, whilst the red shield with three gold rings were the personal arms of Jan Van Riebeeck and the gold lion between them is the lion of Batavia.

I presume the three fleur-de-lis within the annulets recall the French “invasion” of the Netherlands, which helped to inspire the formation of the Batavian Republic, or alternately, the French Huguenots who settled in the Cape.

The flag was adopted in 1875 and abolished in May 1910 with the formation of the Union of South Africa.

MORE BACKGROUND AND INFORMATION ..  “COMMONWEALTH”

The organisation administers the Commonwealth Women Parliamentarians (CWP), a network across the Commonwealth which promotes greater representation for women in Parliament, the CPA Small Branches network, representing parliaments and legislatures with populations below 500,000 people, and the Commonwealth Youth Parliament, an annual gathering of young people hosted by a Commonwealth Parliament.
Government CPA – Commonwealth

The CPA was founded as the
Empire Parliamentary Association in 1911, with its first branches being Australia, Canada, Newfoundland, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom, the latter branch administering the Association as a whole.    In 1948 the Association changed its name to the current Commonwealth Parliamentary Association, and invited all branches to participate in the organisation’s administration.  

Empire Parliamentary Association (1911) changed to Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (1948)

The Commonwealth Parliamentary Association – The CPA was founded in 1911 at a meeting of Heads of Government in Westminster Hall as the then-Empire Parliamentary Association and its affairs were administered by the UK Branch. The original members were Australia, Canada, Newfoundland, New Zealand, South Africa and the United Kingdom.

Since its launch, the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness has been formally endorsed by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)’s Parliamentary Assembly, the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA), and the First Summit of Legislative Presidents of the Americas organized by the Organization of American States (OAS). It has also been endorsed by a number of national and subnational legislatures and parliamentarians.

The Charter brings together the values and aspirations which unite the Commonwealth – democracy, human rights and the rule of law – in a single, accessible document.   The Charter expresses the commitment of member states to the development of free and democratic societies and the promotion of peace and prosperity to improve the lives of all peoples of the Commonwealth.   The Charter also acknowledges the role of civil society in supporting the goals and values of the Commonwealth.

Let gerus op ooreenkomste tussen Britse koloniale bestuur in Afrika met die van Ierland, wanneer die “HOME RULES” ook op die Ierse volk van toepassing gemaak is en bloedige gevegte daaruit voortgespruit het. Alle “bestuursake” word onder die dekmantels van wetgewings gedoen sodat dit vir almal moet lyk of die heersers die regte kanale volg – en ook koppel aan “demokrasie”.

The world’s primary feudal landowner is Queen Elizabeth II. She is Queen of 32 countries, head of a Commonwealth of 54 countries in which a quarter of the world’s population lives, and legal owner of about 6.6 billion acres of land, one-sixth of the earth’s land surface. Her position is a relic of the last and largest land empire in history, rumours of whose demise would appear to be somewhat premature based on her position and possessions. But her power is real, or at least legally real, and it derives from a tradition based on a specific and unbalanced relationship between rulers and the ruled.

Kenya also have “reserves” like it was here in South Africa – 1854-1961.   Today they also have “TRUSTLANDS” like in South Africa (name change).   Land alienation in Kenya : During the colonial period, land in Kenya was divided into three parts, namely the Scheduled Areas, the Coast and the Trust Lands. The latter were also known as Native Reserves or non-scheduled areas.    Mostly communal lands.
