Bantuball was an ancient civilization scattered throughout Africa.

The Bantus constitute an ethnolinguistic group located mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa and encompassing about 400 different ethnic subgroups. The unity of this group, however, appears more clearly in the linguistic scope, since these hundreds of groups and subgroups have, as mother tongue, a language of the Bantu family.

It's eyes are replaced by 8balls and the star and crescent are removed so that he won't be mistaken by Libyaball.


Bantu-icon Bantuball started as an 8-icon 8ball. Around 2,000 BC, Bantus started to migrate to Central and Southern Africa, displacing some of the Khoisan-icon Khoisanball. Some Bantus live in places like Southern Somalia-icon Somaliaball or Nigeria-icon Nigeriaball, but these countries themselves are not Bantu-icon Bantu countries.

How to draw

Drawing Bantuball isn't difficult:

  1. Divide the basic circle shape (provided it isn't made with circle tool) into three horizontal stripes, red, black and green
  2. Draw two 8balls for eyes and you're done. It's just like Libya-icon Libyaball, but without the star and crescent.
