South-West Africa was the name that was used for the modern day Republic of Namibia during the earlier eras when the territory was controlled by the German Empire and later by South Africa. As a German colony from 1884 it was known as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika). After World War I it was declared a League of Nations Mandate territory under the Treaty of Versailles, with South Africa responsible for the administration of South-West Africa. The territory became the independent Republic of Namibia on 21 March 1990 but issued postage stamps under the South West Africa name from 1923 until that date.
