one of the 10 ideas to change the world

The Giant Flag is a world-first green innovation project that celebrates the spirit of South Africa, her land and her people, while bringing together job creation, clean energy and tourism.

We’re building a flag made up of millions of coloured desert plants and a four-megawatt solar field, on a previously barren tract of land. Viewable from space and the size of 66 soccer fields, the Giant Flag will not only claim its place as a natural wonder, but also as a new model of economic stimulus for previously-disadvantaged communities.

We need your help to make it a reality.

Adopt a plant, part of the white road or solar panel in the Giant Flag, and you’ll receive a personalised certificate with GPS coordinates showing the precise location of your contribution, suitable for sharing on social media, or printing and framing. Adopt in the name of a friend or loved-one for a meaningful gift.

Become part of something that creates economic opportunities for the poorest of the poor, honours our natural environment, and showcases the awesome creativity that South Africa brings to the world!
