The Giant Flag is a 66 hectare South African Flag, made up of two and half million coloured desert succulents and a 4 megawatt solar field. It will be established on municipal land on the outskirts of Graaff-Reinet in the Eastern Cape Karoo. The Giant Flag project will layer several streams of environmental, social and economic activity under one over-arching project, that will extend over decades. The concept is to take one Karoo municipality, the Camdeboo, made up of the three towns of Graaff-Reinet, Aberdeen and Nieu-Bethesda, and generate a socio-economic shift so effective that it will change the course of that community forever. All the jobs linked to the Giant Flag, either through direct employment, small, medium and micro enterprise (SMME) incubation or contract, will be considered green collar. All public tenders will favour Camdeboo citizens and companies as a priority, extending to the broader Eastern Cape.
