To not leave this wonderful domain name empty forever I want to start showcasing selected sites that make you proud being South African. If there’s any perspective for a ‘real’ campaign somewhere between ProudlySA and SA rocks, I’m happy to join the campaign with this name.

I’m looking for other fellow South Africans who’re willing to create a real initiative with the wonderful domain name proudly.co.za that I happened to register a while ago. I’m willing to give it away for a good cause if it will be used properly…

Going forward my first priority is finding a new logo and WordPress theme for proudly.co.za that is really south african, colourful and bright. If you’re able to help or know a designer please let me know!

Proudly South Africa (Pty) Limited did send us a letter forcing us to remove this logo“Proudly South African” is a “buy local” campaign and logo launched in 2001 by government and big corporate South African companies, organised labour and community organisations to “boost job creation and pride in ‘local’ by promoting South African companies and their ‘homegrown’ products and services.” For using the Proudly South African trademarked logo (shown on the right side) their products members need to pay a certain percentage of sales of those products to the campaign. At least 50% of the cost of production must be incurred in South Africa and there must be “substantial transformation” of any imported materials.

Their website is hosted at www.proudlySA.co.za not to be confused with the independent free-to-join pro South African campaign here on www.PROUDLY.co.za
