The sun “An emblem of brightness, splendour and the supreme principle of the nature of energy, it symbolizes the promise of rebirth, the active faculties of reflection, knowledge, good judgment and willpower. It is the symbol of the source of life, of light and the ultimate wholeness of humanity”
The secretary bird “is a symbol of divine majesty. Its uplifted wings are an emblem of the ascendance of our nation, while simultaneously offering us its protection. It is depicted in gold, which clearly symbolizes its association with the sun and the highest power”
The protea flower “is an emblem of the beauty of our land and the flowering of our potential as a nation in pursuit of the African Renaissance”
The spear and knobkerrie are “dual symbols of defence and authority; they in turn represent the powerful legs of the secretary bird. The spear and knobkerrie are lying down, symbolizing peace. ”
The human figures shaking hands “figures are depicted in an attitude of greeting, symbolizing unity”
The elephant tusks “symbolize wisdom, strength, moderation and eternity.”
The shield “has a dual function as a vehicle for the display of identity and of spiritual defence”
The ears of the wheat “is an emblem of fertility, it also symbolizes the idea of germination, growth and the feasible development of any potential.”
