Umthombo Wobuntu - Carrier of Great Value

The Buddy Bear symbolizes the people of South Africa as bearers of the irretrievable values of our unique Nature, for which preservation we all are responsible. The luminous sun on the bear's breast illuminates motives from the fauna and flora of South Africa. Smaller motives are arranged around the head, neck, arms and legs to resemble traditional beadwork. The central motive on the top half of the bear's back is a map of South Africa with all its provinces in the bright colours of the flag.
