Family Crest

The family crest embodies the following:

  • Concentric Circles: As Africans, we instinctively embrace the circular. This highlighted by our kraals and rondavals. We sit in a circle during meetings; celebrations and meetings. This to signify unity and equality. The 3 concentric circles are inspired by the Adinkra symbols of West Africa;
  • Elephant: The Elephant is the Dikobo family’s Totem
  • The Tusks: The elephant tusks represent the families’ totem
  • Ndebele artwork: The Ndebele artwork is a well-known artistic representation of the Ndebele clan
