1195 Orangia

This minor planet was named after South African province of Orange Free State. This minor planet was named in 1931, and in 1995 the province was renamed just the Free State.

The symbol of this minor planet is derived from its historic coat of arms: it is a tree surmounting a simplified post horn, two elements that appear in the coat.
