Flag History
In 1971, the name of the country changed to Zaire and the flag was based on that of the ruling party. In 2006 the flag was replaced by the present design which has gold fimbriations that suggest hope in the future for the Democratic Republic of Congo. The red diagonal symbolized the blood shed in the civil wars.

Congo, Democratic Republic National Anthem

Arise Congolese (Debout Congolais)

Listen

Lyrics

Arise, Congolese,
United by fate,
United in the struggle for independence,
Let us hold up our heads, so long bowed,
And now, for good, let us keep moving boldly ahead, in peace.
Oh, ardent people, by hard work we shall build,
In peace, a country more beautiful than before.

Countrymen, sing the sacred hymn of your solidarity,
Proudly salute the golden emblem of your sovereignty, Congo.

Blessed gift of our forefathers,
Oh beloved country,
We shall people your soil and ensure your greatness.
Oh gentle sun of 30 June,
Be witness of the immortal oath of freedom
That we pass on to our children forever.
