It is not right to fly the old SA flag - too much pain was inflicted in its name.

More pain, world wide, was however inflicted under the British flag. Everybody apologised after 40-odd years of apartheid. When will the Queen of England apologise for what the British did over hundreds of years all over the world?   

Are we flying the Union Jack in the meantime? It could take some years for the queen to say sorry, if ever.

This is much much more than about a UK flag, or concentration camps. So let's rightfully pack the old SA flag away, and join hands to do the same with the Union Jack.
