The Southern part of Rhodesia, previously administered by the British South Africa Company, was annexed by the British Government and granted the status of a self-governing colony from 1 October 1923. Stamps were issued under "Southern Rhodesia" between 1924-1953, together with one definitive set issued in 1964 also.
In 1964, after Northern Rhodesia became independent as Zambia, Southern Rhodesia unilaterally declared itself independent as "Rhodesia". This status was not internationally recognised until 1979 when the Constitution of Zimbabwe-Rhodesia was passed and Zimbabwe was recognised as independent in 1980.
