Unidentified flags in South Africa

image from Tomislav Todorovic, 01 March 2015

The Citizen Alert Za blog shows this flag which is clearly derived from the national flag of South Africa: green Scandinavian-type cross, fimbriated yellow at the hoist side and white at the fly side, which divides the field into two black fields (hoist) and one red (top fly) and one blue field (bottom fly). The colour shades are the same as those of the national flag. The file name of the image [see above] suggests that the flag is used by a corporate body whose name is abbreviated MMC, but I was not able to find any information about such an entity on the Web, so this shall be taken with reserve. Any idea whose flag this might be?

Does the abbreviation MMC stand for Roman numerals? Just a wild guess.

I don't think so - I cannot see any connection to the number 2100.

There is a South African Christian Men's Conference called the "Mighty Men Conference".  The photo, especially with the file name clue, looks like it was taken at an MMC event, and indeed at there is a photo of an MMC event including such a flag. It is not intended as a flag for the MMC specifically, but as a general South African Christian flag, simply combining a cross with the national flag. The blog Ferdi Vertel mentioned it in 2010. Using the Google Translator, it says: "How do you like this redesign of an old flag? I think it can help Christians to stand together and to trust God for miracles for our country".

That photo looks like a smaller and horizontally flipped version of the first reported one.
