Flag of Republic of the Congo

The flag of the Republic of the Congo 🇨🇬 consists of a rectangular sheet, which is diagonally crossed by a yellow wide stripe. The left part of the flag is complemented by a green triangle and the right side by a red one. The flag was adopted for the first time in 1958, when so called Middle Congo gained independence from France and an autonomous republic was cretaed. In 1969, however, the communist coup took place and the flag was replaced by a red flag with typical Soviet symbols. After fall of the regime in 1991, the previous flag has been re-adopted. The colors used are of traditional Pan-African importance - thus symbolize solidarity among all independent African states.
