Flag of Democratic Republic of the Congo

The current flag of the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has been adopted after the approval of a new constitution in 2006, is composed of a blue sheet, red diagonal stripe and a yellow five-pointed star at the top of the left part of the flag. Blue symbolizes peace, red stands for blood of martyrs, yellow color that frames the red stripe denotes prosperity and the star represents hope for a brighter future of the country. DRC was under the Belgian domination until 1960 and in 1971 it was renamed to Zaire. At that time the flag was brought out in traditional pan-African colors. However, after the overthrow of the government in 1996 this form was abandoned and a flag with six small and one large five-pointed star was used until 2006.
