The flag was used approximately from 1960-1962. The state of South Kasai was proclaimed in June 1960 by tribal chief Albert Kalonji.
Jaume Ollé, Jul 1996
This flag is listed under number 6 at the chart Flags of Aspirant Peoples [asp] as: «South Kasai (Independent state, 1960-62) - Zaire». The State of South Kasai lasted from 09 August 1960 to 02 October 1962. Ruled by President (later King), it was officially known as the Mining State because of its diamonds and other precious materials.

On this webpage and on this one is shown a flag quite different from the one we show for South Kasai, though it would fit the same verbal description, if put vaguely enough: "Its flag was something like horizontally red-green or green-red with a large yellow 'V'. [smi75]".
