Coat of armsEdit
The Coat of Arms (see depiction on the right) is in the colours of the "Vierkleur van Transvaal" (Flag of the old Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek):
The Green: A symbol of hope.
The Red: Symbol of willingness to defend our freedom with our own blood.
The White: Symbol of cleanliness and pure intentions towards freedom.
The Blue: Symbol of the heavens and the Boer people's trust in God triune as the Almighty.
The strong bond at the top of the coat of arms symbolises the strong bond to God.
The cross symbolises trust in Jesus Christ.
The wagon wheel symbolises the history of Boer-heraldry and culture.
(Note that the wagon wheel is underneath the cross, thus symbolising that the faith is the more important of the two and culture is derived from the faith).
The words "Gods Woord ons Anker" is the Afrikaans for "God's Word is our Anchor".
