Flag of the Republic of the Congo (GIF)



The flag of the Republic of the Congo (French: drapeau de la république du Congo) consists of a green triangle in the upper left corner, a red triangle in the lower right corner, and a yellow diagonal band between them. The green color represents the agriculture and forests of the Congo, while the yellow color represents the "friendship and nobility" of the Congolese people. But the symbolism behind the red has not yet been revealed. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on September 15, 1959.

The shield on its coat of arms has a red lion holding a torch, two black elephants on either side of the shield, a golden forest crown on top of the shield, and a French motto below it meaning "Unity, Work, Progress."
