Boer Nationalism is a strong nationalist and separatist belief held by the Boer people of South Africa. It is best described as a desire to be politically and socially independent in a homeland in Southern Africa and, since the Boer culture developed in South Africa, they claim indegious status there. Boer Nationalism is accompanied by a strong Calvinist worldview. Boer nationalists believe their people to be a covenant people, in a special relationship with God, according to the covenant made by the Voortrekkers during the Great Trek and Boers still celebrate the day of the Vow, December, 16th as a sabbath. It also supports republicanism and capitalism and strongly opposes communism and imperialism.
