The 2018 Day of Reconciliation marks the 24th Anniversary of this National Day and will be celebrated under the theme: “The year of Nelson Mandela and Albertina Sisulu: Liberators for reconciliation”.
Day of Reconciliation aims to promote national unity, social cohesion, constitutional democracy, human rights and equality by highlighting and advancing the constitutional values and principles that bind together all South Africans.
Day of Reconciliation will also be a rallying point for the #I AM THE FLAG campaign launched earlier this month to highlight the importance of our national symbols and to encourage South Africans to embrace the National Flag as an element of reconciliation among all South Africans.
The national flag is one of symbols that represent South African values, the Struggle for liberation and aspirations for a better South Africa. It also characterises diversity, unity and pride as a nation.
