Brief History

In 1894 a dark and light blue horizontal striped flag with Swazi shield at the centre was adopted to represent the Triumvirate government made up of British, Swazi and Boer people that ruled. In the same year the Swazi people become under the protectorate of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republic and the red-white-blue horizontal tricolour with vertical green band flag of the Zuid-Afrikaansche Republic was flown.

After the Anglo-Boer War in 1903 the British became the protectorate of Swaziland and the Union Jack was flown.

The Union Jack remained until Swaziland gained independence in 1968. The new flag featured a blue, red and yellow horizontal stripes with a black and white shield at the centre in front of 2 spears and a staff decorated with feathers. It is based on the flag given by Hing Sobhuza II to the Swazi Pioneer Corps in 1941.
