This paper explores how South Africa’s creation of the independent Bantustans resulted in the complex expression of nationalism through postage stamp iconography. The resultant narratives are identified as drawing upon territoriality, nationhood, political authority, and international citizenship in efforts to claim sovereignty that served to reinscribe and reinforce factors contributing to the Bantustans’ experiences of constrained sovereignty
