  • Hey everybody, welcome back to flag fan Friday. Hope you like the eSwatini episode we're gonna put my liners back in

  • Yeah, you know 20 because the name is swathi knee is actually not a new name

  • It's literally what the people of the country have been calling the country ever since day one the eponymous with the former king and Swati

  • The second but I wasn't until recently that they decided to change the official English

  • name into is martini one reason why is because it was the fiftieth anniversary of their

  • Independence and it was kind of a unilateral decision from the king and the Queen but yeah

  • It's gonna take a while for our brains to get accustomed to it

  • Anyway, there's also the part where I cover some of the small stuff that didn't make it into the episode for one

  • I wanted to talk about the rail network

  • It actually trans sex the country both north and south going into both South Africa and Mozambique

  • I also wanted to talk about the lobola or

  • bridewealth which is kind of like the Swazi equivalent to a

  • Dowry, usually it's paid in cattle towards the bride's family when she gets married Nelson

  • Mandela was actually paid lobola

  • When his daughter married his Swasey Prince and there's a few other things I coulda mentioned but we got to keep this gravy train rolling

  • So without further ado

  • I

  • Swat tini for the first time we broke the alphabetical rule

  • I figured it would probably happen at some point before we finished all the episodes but enough on that the flag the flag is a

  • banner featuring a

  • horizontal tricolour of two blue bands on top and bottom to thinner yellow bands bordering the blue ones and a big red band in the

  • Center in the center of the flag lies the traditional black and white Moony shield covering two Spears and a staff

  • decorated with feather tassels called enjoyable the blue stands for peace and stability the yellow stands for the mineral resources and the red stands for

  • The struggles of the nation and that definition is a little vague

  • I don't want to misinterpret it and say it stands for the blood of those before the country like so many other Flags so sorry

  • No animation this week the shield plays a reminder to the population of their nation's military

  • traditions and protection from the nation's enemies

  • It is called black and white not just because of the colors of the oxide that the shields are made of but also to symbolize

  • The unity of the black and white people that live peacefully in the country

  • Keep in mind the country also has a royal standard flag, but they use for the royal family. It features the lion way back

  • Yeehaw they used another flag with the shield and they also under the British as a protectorate. Yeah

  • So anyway, the coat-of-arms the coat-of-arms is pretty self-explanatory

  • The image depicts the same Muni shield and weaponry as the flag on a blue shield

  • Adorned with a crown of feathers typically worn at the in koala ceremony on the sides are the lion and elephant

  • Representing the king or mon yama and the queen elephant mother or that Indo?

  • Vacati at the bottom on a banner lies the model te kapa which means we are the fortress

  • I think I pronounced that right si acaba. Is that

  • It's kind of similar to Zulu right your cues make the clicking sound by the way

  • If that word when Yama sounds a little similar to you

  • That's because it is very similar to the Zulu word for Lion in one yama which is song like a billion times in the Lion

  • King song come on, you know the song sing with me

  • Anyway, so yeah that is just about that. So, you know what time it is
