The Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) has always used the flags of the Boer Republics as its national flags, as well as other Boer independentist movements.
The flag of the RSA, the macrostate-empire originated by the capitalist war which deprived the Boer nation of its freedom shall not be used by the Boer independentism, because in contrast with it.
Nevertheless, the flag of RSA is remembered with affection by many whites (of various nationalities) of southern Africa, who believed to see their volk represented in it.
Certainly, the flag of RSA has scored so many years of history in southern Africa, and for decades has represented also the Boer nation, but in its state of subjection to foreign and international powers.

Some versions of the RSA’s flag transformed, were carried out over the years. One version, a little known, has also been used by AWB albeit in very rarely occasions and several years ago: in this case the flag of RSA freeing itself of the British flag in the white horizontal strip, replaced by a Christian and nationalist, anti-capitalist and anti-Communist symbol (the Three-Sevens).
The “orange, white and blue” flag (at the base of the RSA flag), also called “Prince’s flag” which is believe also to have been used by Van Riebeeck, however, it isn’t a Boer flag.
