Flag of the Republic of Congo

Just like the flag of the United States, the flag of the Republic of Congo has experienced some changes.

Flag of the Kingdom of Kongo (circa 17th century)
Flag of the French Congo (1959-1970)

Flag of the People's Republic of Congo (1970-1991)
The current flag was adopted on September 15, 1959 and readopted on June 1991.
The green stands for the forests and agriculture of Congo, and the yellow represents the friendship and nobility of the Congolese people.
The symbolism behind the red is unknown.
