In 2011 the Department of Human Resources within the
South African National Defence Force (SANDF) adopted a distinctive flag
based on the SANDF flag, namely having the badge of the department in the fly of
a dark green ensign with the South African national flag,
fimbriated in white, in the canton.
The badge of the Department comprises a crossed key and quill in yellow on a dark green background, within the SANDF emblem which incorporates a nine-pointed “Star” representing the warm sun of Africa and the nine provinces of South Africa. The use of the green and gold are the corporate colours of the Department of Defence. Green symbolises the natural wealth of Africa while gold can be seen as a reference to mineral wealth as well as nobility and purity.
