The flag was used approximately from 1960-1962. The state of South Kasai
was proclaimed in June 1960 by tribal chief Albert Kalonji.
Jaume Ollé, Jul 1996
This flag is listed under number 6 at the chart Flags of Aspirant
Peoples [asp] as: «South Kasai
(Independent state, 1960-62) - Zaire». The State of South Kasai lasted
from 09 August 1960 to 02 October 1962. Ruled by President (later King),
it was officially known as the Mining State because of its diamonds and
other precious materials.
Ivan Sache, 12 Sep 1999, quoting from [smi76]
image by Harald Müller, 12 Jan 1996
webpage and on this
one is shown a flag quite different from the one we show for South
Kasai, though it would fit the same verbal description, if put vaguely
enough: "Its flag was something like horizontally red-green or green-red
with a large yellow 'V'. [smi75]".
