Madibeng Local Municipality is located in the Bojanala Platinum District in the North West province of South Africa and comprises the former local authorities of Brits, Hartbeespoort and Ga-Rankuwa.
The flag design is based on the coat of arms used by the municipality and the
principal elements are water, for the three dams in the area; the cog-wheel and
mine-wheel for industry and mining - with some of South Africa's largest
platinum mines being in the area. The three mountain peaks symbolise the
Magliesberg range which is an important geographical feature in the area. The
sun alludes to warmth and life.
