Johannesburg - AfriForum was on Friday denied leave to appeal Deputy Judge President Phineas Mojapelo's ruling that the gratuitous display of the apartheid flag was banned.
The application was heard in the Equality Court, at the Gauteng South High Court.
Advocate Mark Oppenheimer who appeared on behalf of AfriForum, argued that the appeal would be successful in a different court more so because the ruling was binding on all South Africans.
However, Advocate Ben Winks, for Nelson Mandela Foundation did not share his sentiments.
“We did not believe that there is any reason another court would come to a different decision unless there are compelling reasons.” said Winks.
