We dance, even when we protest. We sing, even when we are sad. We use beads on our clothes, in our hair and to make life-sized flamingos. And we embraced colourful prints long before they sashayed down fashion runways.

On 25 May it is the 50th year of Africa Day and Africa unity. Africa Day offers everyone the chance to celebrate the diversity of Africa.

Celebrate Africa Day 2013 with us in a way that best captures this impassioned spirit: through snapping your pics of Africa. .

Throughout May, Standard Bank Group is looking to share this spirit through the vibrant colours of our beautiful continent.

Come on, be part of it by uploading your snapshots depicting the colourful life, crafts, land and industry of Africa to Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.

Share your images of Africa using the hashtag: #SBmovingforward.
