Detail of the White Coat of Arms

The White Stereotype

This coat of arms represents the stereotype white person in South Africa. English or Afrikaans.

It is well known that every single white person in this country has a colonial history. We were not originally from Africa. Our ancestors are colonialists who travelled the world in search for new land.

They all also have a tendency for ruling and organising.  Trying to make things perfect.

This is why my white crest consists of a mesh of countries, mainly European countries and South Africa. It is laid on a grid of streets to create the feeling of organisation.

Lastly, it’s all done in white to emphasise the colour of their skin.
