I am in Swaziland for a week. Since the end of August 2012 I am the "Apostolic Administrator" of the Diocese of Manzini, appointed after the death of Bp Louis Ndlovu OSM. In simple words, we normally say I am the "acting Bishop" until a new Bishop is appointed by the Pope.
Red stands for the battles of the past

Yellow stands for the resources
The flag of Swaziland was adopted on October 1, 1968.
The flag is based on one given by King Sobhuza II to the Swazi Pioneer Corps in 1941. On it is an Emasotsha shield, laid horizontally. The shield is reinforced by a staff from which hangs injobo tassels-bunches of feathers of the widowbird and the lourie. They also decorate the shield. Above the staff are two assegais-local spears.
