) is the northernmost province of South Africa (Provinces of South Africa). The capital is Polokwane, formerly named ''Pietersburg''. The province was formed from the northern region of Transvaal Province in 1994, and initially named '''Northern Transvaal'''. The following year, it was renamed '''Northern Province''', which remained the name until 11 July 2003, when the name of the province was formally changed to the name (Geographical renaming) of its most important river (Limpopo River)–on the border with Zimbabwe and Botswana–after deliberation by the provincial government and amendment of the Constitution (Constitution of South Africa). A notable consideration for the name was Mapungubwe, the area where the most ancient gold-using civilisation of the province was discovered a few years earlier. Another name that was proposed for Limpopo was Vhembe, a Venda name for Limpopo river but this name was voted against by absolute majority of members of the Legislature. Geography Limpopo Province shares international borders with districts and provinces of three countries: Botswana's (Botswana) Central (Central District (Botswana)) and Kgatleng (Kgatleng District) districts to the west and north-west respectively, Zimbabwe's (Zimbabwe) Matabeleland South and Masvingo (Masvingo (province)) provinces to the north and northeast respectively, and Mozambique's (Mozambique) Gaza Province to the east. The province is the link between South Africa and countries further afield in sub-Saharan Africa. On its southern flank from east to west, the province shares borders with Mpumalanga, Gauteng, and North West (North West (South African province)). Its border with Gauteng includes that province's Johannesburg-Pretoria axis, the most industrialised metropole on the continent. The province is at the centre of regional, national, and international developing markets. Symbolism ''Gloriosa superba'' is the national flower of Zimbabwe (where it is a protected plant).

Zimbabwe

'''Zimbabwe''' , officially the '''Republic of Zimbabwe''', is a landlocked country located in southern Africa, between the Zambezi and Limpopo (Limpopo River) rivers. It is bordered by South Africa to the south, Botswana to the southwest, Zambia to the northwest and Mozambique to the east. The capital and largest city is Harare.

What is now Zimbabwe was historically the site of many prominent kingdoms and empires, as well as a major route for migration and trade. The present territory was first demarcated by Cecil Rhodes' British South Africa Company during the 1890s, becoming the self-governing colony of Southern Rhodesia in 1923. In 1965 the conservative white (White people in Zimbabwe) minority government (Minority rule) unilaterally declared independence (Unilateral Declaration of Independence) as Rhodesia. The unrecognized state (List of historical unrecognized states) endured international isolation and a 15-year civil war (Rhodesian Bush War) between the government and black nationalist forces; this culminated in a peace agreement (Lancaster House Agreement) that established universal enfranchisement and ''de jure'' sovereignty in April 1980.

An ethnically diverse country of roughly 13 million people, Zimbabwe has 16 official languages, with English (English language), Shona (Shona language) and Ndebele (Northern Ndebele language) being most common. President (List of Presidents of Zimbabwe) Robert Mugabe is head of state and government, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces (Zimbabwe Defence Forces). Renowned as a champion for the anti-colonial cause, He has held power since 1980: as head of government until 1987, and head of both state and government since then.
