Flag of Swaziland

The flag of Swaziland was officially adopted on October 30, 1967. It's modeled after a flag given to the Swazi Pioneer Corps by King Sobhuza II in 1941.

The centered regiment shield features a supporting staff with hanging tassels of feathers. Two Swazi ceremonial spears are placed above the staff.
