      Nacionalne obrambene južnoafričke snage u sadašnjem obliku postoje Od 1994. godine, nakon post-aparhejd izbora i donošenja novog Ustava. Zamijenile su Južnoafričke obrambene snage (SADF) čiji su pripadnici uključeni u novu vojsku sastavljenu još od pripadnika bivših regionalnih vojski (u aparthejdu Homelands), raznih pobunjeničkih snaga kao što su bili Umkhonto we Sizwe Afričkog Nacionalnog kongresa, pripadnika Sveafričkog Kongresa te Jedinica za obranu Zulu Inkatha oslobodilačke stranke. 2004. godina se smatra godinom završetka inkorporiranja svih ovih snaga koje zadržavaju organizacijsku strukturu stare vojske.

      The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) is the name of the armed forces of South Africa. The military as it exists today was created in 1994, following South Africa's first post-apartheid national elections and the adoption of a new constitution. It replaced the South African Defence Force (SADF), and included personnel and equipment from the SADF and the former homelands forces, as well as personnel from the former guerrilla forces of some of the political parties involved in South Africa, such as the African National Congress's Umkhonto we Sizwe, the Pan Africanist Congress's APLA and the Self-Protection Units of the Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP). As of 2004, the integration process was considered complete, with the integrated personnel having been incorporated into a slightly modified structure very similar to that of the SADF, with the latter's structure and equipment for the most part being retained.

ABOUT SPECIAL FORCES SIMBOLS   O SIMBOLIMA SPECIJALNIH SNAGA

 

      Ruža kompasa (kompasova ruža) je simbol Južno Afričkih specijalnih snaga. Predstavlja i sposobnost i spremnost pripadnika ovih jedinica za raspoređivanje i djelovanje na bilo kojoj lokaciji, svim raspoloživim metodama, u svakoj situaciji, pod bilo kojim uvjetima, na svakoj vrsti terena, bilogdjee i u bilo koje vrijeme.

      The Compass Rose is the symbol of the South African Special Forces. It denotes both the ability and willingness of the South African Special Forces to Deploy and Operate in any location, by any method, in any situation, under any circumstances, in any terrain, anywhere, at any time.

      Prije perioda racionalizacije boje izviđačkih regimenti su bile bijela i crna. Formalno, to je predstavljalo sposobnost i volju za izvođenje akcija bilo danju (bijelo), bilo noću (crno). Neformalno, među pripadnicima te su boje predstavljale ne rasnu politiku Specijalnih snaga, jer su pripadnici, bijeli i crni, radili i stajali jedni uz druge, na principima jednakosti. Unutrašnjost Ruže komapasa je bila obojena srebrenom bojom.

      The Colours of the Regimental Badges were – during the Pre Rationalisation period - Black and White. Formally, this denoted the ability and willingness of the South African Special Forces to Deploy and Operate during day (white) or night (black). Informally, amongst the personnel of Special Forces, these colours symbolised the non-racial policy of Special Forces, whereby all personnel – black or white – worked and stood united according to principles of equality. The interior of the Compass Rose insignia was coloured Silver.
