Venda ("world" or "land") is the traditional home of the BaVenda tribe.
Venda was granted internal self-government in 1973 and was one of the four so-called "independent" homelands having been granted independence in 1979 by South Africa.
However, this independence was not recognized by any country in the world.
It ceased to exist as a political entity on 27. April 1994 and has been incorporated into South Africa. Its flag and license plates are no longer in use.
