History of the Central African Republic

The Central African Republic flag was adopted in 1958 and is comprised of four equal-sized horizontal stripes in the colors blue, white, green, and yellow. In the middle of the flag, a vertical red stripe cuts through the four horizontal stripes from the top to the bottom of the flag. A yellow 5-pointed star is positioned in the left-hand corner of the flag. The colors used signify the harmony between the Europeans and the Africans. The red, white, and blue colors pay homage to the French tricolor flag, while the red, yellow, and green colors are the Pan-African colors. The red vertical stripe is the common color amongst both the Pan African and French colors and runs across the other four colors to symbolize the unity. The 5-pointed yellow star in the corner symbolizes independence. The red color also signifies the fight for independence and the bloodshed, the blue color represents freedom, the white color signifies peace, and the yellow color stands for independence and the savannas within the country. The Central African Republic Flag was adopted on December 1st, 1958, when the country became the "Central African Republic."

The Central African Republic is a landlocked country located in Central Africa, to the north of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Its largest and capital city is Bagui. In 1885, the French and Germans began to arrive in the country and in 1894, the French established a colony, the "Ubangi-Shari territory." During this period, the French flag was flown over the region. Following World War II, in 1946, the French African people began to rebel and to seek independence and in 1948, they voted to become an independent republic, yet remaining within the French territory. It wasn't until 1960 that the Central African Republic received full independence from the French and became an independent republic with the first President David Dacko. In 1966, Jean-Bedel Bokassa became President of the country and in 1976, the Central African Republic become a monarchy (Central African Empire) which led to disastrous consequences. In 1979, following Bokassa's overthrow, the Central African Monarchy, once again, became a republic.

The Central African Republic is a very poor country, however, it is home to many beautiful landmarks and scenery that attracts tourists. The capital city, Bagui is located on the Ubagi River and is home to many attractions including the central market (renowned for malachite necklaces), Boganda museum, the cathedral, and the Saint Paul mission. The landscape of the Central African Republic consists mainly of savannas. The country is home to the most lowland gorillas and forest elephants in the world. Other natural attractions in the country include "Boali Falls," the "Dzanga-Ndoki National Park," where the biggest forest in the country resides as well as the largest population of gorillas, and the "Kaga-Kpoungouvou caves," which are famous for providing housing and refuge for slaves during their escape before slavery was abolished.

Central African Republic National Anthem

The Renaissance (La Renaissance)

Listen

Lyrics

Oh! Central Africa, cradle of the Bantu!
Take up again your right to respect, to life!
Long subjugated, long scorned by all,
But, from today, breaking tyranny's hold.
Through work, order and dignity
You reconquer your rights, your unity,
And to take this new step
The voice of our ancestors call us.

To work! In order and dignity,
in the respect for rights and in unity,
Breaking poverty and tyranny,
Holding high the flag of the Fatherland.
