National Sea Rescue Institute flag - current version

The National Sea Rescue Institute (NSRI) was established in 1967 and is a non-profit organisation responsible for sea and dam rescue in and around South Africa. The NSRI is manned by 980 volunteers at 32 bases around the coast and at three inland dams.

In a recent re-branding exercise, the logo and flag of the NSRI were amended.  The basic flag design remains the same as that initially approved by the Bureau of Heraldry (see below), but the cross is now red, and the letters are bolder and in a sans serif font.  The flag still appears in the amended logo of the institute.
