Orange Free State
All the former South African Homelands ("independent" and non-independent) ceased to exist as
political entities on 27. April 1994 and have all been reincorporated into South Africa.
The flags of the former homelands are no longer in use either officially or unofficially.
The license plates of the former provinces and homelands were not immediately changed over to the new political organization of South Africa (see section below) but have been gradually phased out and replaced by colorful designs.
