The Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (PTC) was formed on 01 July 1970 and was responsible for the provision of all post and telecommunications services in what was then Rhodesia. It was created by an Act of Parliament and replaced the Ministry of Posts.

It had a plain white flag defaced in the centre with its acronym in red capital letters.  This flag flew alongside the Rhodesian national flag at all post office throughout the country.
