Jacaranda FM have designed a special flag to show support for the Springboks playing in the final this weekend. The flag includes pictures of the faces of their staff and listeners.
Radio station listeners were given the opportunity to send pictures to the broadcaster and those pictures were printed onto the flag. The big unveiling of the flag was done by loud drummers on the radio station rooftop.
This special flag will be hanging on the rooftop and is visible from the N1 highway between Pretoria and Johannesburg.
The Springboks are looking to win the World Cup for a third time when they take on England on on Saturday. Briefly.co.za reported that President Cyril Ramaphosa is ready to play his part. Ramaphosa is on his way to Yokohama, Japan, to show his support for the Springboks as they contest the Rugby World Cup final. Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga will serve as acting president in the absence of Ramaphosa and Deputy President David Mabuza.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu also reached out to the Springboks as the pressure mounts ahead of Saturday's big moment. Tutu and his wife Leah told the team that they should be weightless on the field when they take England on, 'carried by the love, respect, and prayers of 56-million of us at home'.
Kick-off is at 11am local time.
