History of the Congo Republic flag
The Congo Republic flag consists of three colors: green, yellow, and red. A diagonal yellow stripe starts from the bottom hoist-side corner of the flag and runs to the top fly-side corner. The triangle formed above the stripe is green, while the triangle beneath is red. From 1880, the country was a French Protectorate until 1910, when it became a colony of French Equatorial Africa. The current design of the Congo Republic flag was adopted when the country gained independence from France. The new flag was adopted on September 12th, 1959 to replace the French tricolor flag. The designed remained in use until 1970, when the country became, The People's Republic of Congo. This new communist country used a red flag with a green coat of arms in the upper hoist-side corner. In 1991, due to economic problems and breakdowns, the People's Republic of the Congo collapsed and the original flag adopted in 1959, was restored.
The green color of the flag symbolizes the rich agriculture of the country and the rainforests and the yellow color signifies the friendship and nobility of the people. There has been no formal explanation for the red color. The Congo Republic flag utilizes the Pan-African colors including the same colors as the Ethiopian flag, which is the oldest independent country in Africa. The Congo Republic flag, is the only national flag that has a diagonal design. To celebrate their independence from the French, the flag was first raised on top of the building that was previously the home of the French High Commission.
The Congo Republic is located in Central Africa and shares borders with Gabon, the Atlantic Ocean, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Angolan exclave of Cabinda. The largest and capital city is Brazaville, which is located on the Congo River. Brazzaville obtained its name from the French explorer, Pierre Savorgnande Brazza, who helped establish the country as a French Protectorate. The capital city faces the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo (Kinshasa) making them the two closest national capitals, following only Rome and the Vatican City.
The Congo Republic is mainly covered by rainforest and is home to many beautiful sights and landmarks. Diosso Gorge is a natural formation that is sometimes referred to as the "Grand Canyon of the Congo." The formation features red ridges and cliffs as well as rainforest. The Basilica of St. Anne monument in Brazzaville is an architecturally stunning building that draws many visitors each year. Likewise, the Odzala National Park is one of the most important areas for the conservation of forest elephants and western gorillas in Central Africa.
