A colourful World Cup for the Rainbow Nation
South Africa is known as the “Rainbow Nation” and, when you see the diverse selection of colours and creeds within South Africa, you’ll know exactly why. We’re a country with 11 official languages and home to a flag with 6 colours. Indeed, when you see the South African flag lined up with all the other flags of the participating World Cup nations, you’ll see just how colourful our flag really is.
With over 500,000 visitors to our shores for the 2010 Fifa World Cup, our country has been awash with colourful fans from other nations – from the bright orange of the Dutch, to the yellow of Brazil and the red of Ghana, this has indeed been a celebration of colour. Let us toast the colourful fans who have graced our shores!
