Karoo - Day5 Leg14 - Roadside Flags

As we got onto the tar road that runs the last few km into Steytlerville, we discovered a mini history lesson in flags of the country over time, painted onto the rock cliffs. The flag displays on the rocks  started way back in time (as a good few 100 meters) and came forward over the years until the last few where the flag changed from the old "Apartheid" SA flag to the latest "Rainbow nation" SA flag. We had past some of the earlier flags and didn't photograph them, by the time we stopped for the last two, so we took double of the later ones instead! mental note to go back there sometime and get them all. Then we can update this blog.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011. See the plans for the trip blog here: Planning a 6 day 2500km route through the Karoo maximising dirt
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
