EASTERN CAPE – CAPE EAST 

EASTERN CAPE - CAPE EAST

Our emblem was designed by Miss Dorothy Savage and this is a quote from her letter that was sent to the Region about two months before she passed away. “I chose the ship in full sail to represent the fleet of Vasco da Gama arriving at our coast. I like to think the emblem reminds the Guides of the great courage of these and other early explorers and their spirit of adventure, and of the Settlers who later came to our Eastern Province. These men and women battled against immense difficulties, often setting up homes almost bare of necessities. They set us an example of how to fend for ourselves.”

Also a quote from the late Mrs Phobe Bromiley during her term as Provincial Commissioner – Cape East – “Miss Savage also designed and made our Cape East Standard – Besides being a clever and artistic woman, she was a wonderful Guide and an example to all other Guides.”

EASTERN CAPE – CENTRAL

EASTERN CAPE - CENTRAL

The Regional emblem has 3 aspects:  the Aloe, sunshine and mountain.  The Aloe is an indigenous plant and is dominant in the area.  Most households use it for medicinal purposes.  The Aloe is a strong plant – that is what we want in Guiding and to be able to survive in various droughts or difficulties. Sunshine is the beginning of a new, adventurous day. When the sun is shining we believe in new promising things.  Mountains and hills surround us and they beautify our Region.

EASTERN CAPE - MGWALI

The Xhosa woman with the Calabash is walking down to the Girl Guide Community Centre (Elukhanyiswen) to get skills which are like water in their lives.

Mgwali Region is the newest Girl Guides Region in the Eastern Cape. It is situated in the Engcobo District.  The Region is named in honour of the late Dr Wonga Mbekeni and the late Mr Makhululu Njozela who contributed significantly to the Girl Guides in the district. Both gentlemen had played on the banks and swum in the river and had even drunk water from the Mgwali River.

GAUTENG WEST

GAUTENG WEST

The Roodepoort Copper Butterfly is listed on the South African Red Data Butterfly Book as ‘Vulnerable’, which falls under the threatened category. The species is endemic only to the Ruimsig area of Roodepoort, and can be found in the Ruimsig Entomological Reserve. The rapid urbanisation in the area and the introduction of alien plant life pose a possible threat to the butterfly’s habitat and, ultimately, its survival. The butterfly was chosen to represent our Region because it is unique to the area.  The fact that it requires our protection is symbolic of the commitment of the girls of our Region to their duty to protect creation and their country’s heritage.

KWAZULU NATAL – INLAND

KWAZULU NATAL - INLAND

The two wildebeest running from left to right was accepted as the “Arms of Natal” in 1870. Wildebeest were a common game in the early days and their skins comprised a large proportion of Natal’s hide exports, which in turn formed a large proportion of the Colony’s exports.

In 1994 the Natal Girl Guides Association adopted the two black wildebeest in silhouette as the Provincial emblem.

In heraldry, the maiden’s shield is a diamond, so the new Provincial badge has the two black Wildebeest running on a white diamond shape with the word NATAL across the lower point.

When the Province was split into Coastal, Southern and Inland in 1926, we were lucky enough to be given the original Standard to treasure and use

MPUMALANGA EAST

MPUMALANGA EAST

The badge uses the four colours representing the four Branches of Guiding. Teddies = golden yellow, Brownies = brown, Guides = blue, Rangers = green.  The white is for purity.  The rising sun (“mpuma” = rising and “langa”= sun in the African language) is the sun rising over the province of Mpumalanga. The sun’s rays represent Guiding’s spirit upwards and onwards. The Acacia tree is very prevalent in the area and has many uses:  the pods are fodder for the animals, the thorn branches are used to make kraals to keep the animals safe and the wood of the tree is used for fires.  The E and W is used to show the differentiation between the Mpumalanga East and Mpumalanga West Regions.

Cape West Region

Cape West Region

Our emblem, the Lady of Good Hope or the Cape Virgin, dressed in white, standing beside a rock and holding an anchor in her left hand, has been accepted as representing the Cape for so long that few realise that she has been the symbol of Hope probably before the Cape was discovered.

The first time the Lady of Good Hope was used to symbolize the Cape was in the design of the old Groote Kerk Church Seal. When the Cape Colony Cape Administration. was granted responsible Government in 1872, the Lady of Good Hope was placed as a Crest above the Colony’s Coat of arms and is still seen in the same position above the Arms.

In 1910, representing the oldest Province she was given the traditional heraldic place of honour of occupying the first quarter of the shield of the Union, now the Republic, Coat of Arms.

The Cape Province of the Girl Guides Association which then included Cape West, East and North decided to have the Lady of Good Hope on a blue background for their shoulder emblem and as a brooch for a hat badge. After a while they were informed that this was incorrect in Heraldry, as hope always lay on red – the emblem and hat badge were then changed to their present form.
