Matlosana

The City of Matlosana is a local municipality in the Kenneth Kaunda (formerly Southern) District municipality in the North West province of South Africa and comprises the towns of Klerksdorp, Hartbeesfontein, Orkney and Stilfontein.  The new municipal flag has a white background with the municipal logo in the centre with the words in black "City of" above and "Matlosana" below. The slogan of the municipality, "City of People - Matlosana" appears vertically in the fly.  The yellow and green stripes allude to the gold mining and agricultural basis of the area with the figures evoking the dynamism of its people. The flag is illustrated here but is not shown on the municipal website.

Following the re-demarcation of South African local authorities in December 2000, Klerksdorp, Hartbeesfontein, Orkney and Stilfontein amalgamated to form a new local authority called City of Matlosana and new municipal symbols were adopted. The new municipal logo comprises two human figures with arms and legs outstretched against a yellow and green stripe reflecting the gold mining and agricultural basis of the area with the figures evoking the dynamism of its people.
