Congo Flags

The flag of Congo, adopted in 1958, is divided diagonally from the lower hoist to the upper fly by a yellow stripe creating two isosceles triangles. The triangle along the hoist is green, and the one along the fly is red. Consisting of pan-African colors, the flag of Congo was the fifth national flag to use these colors. Abandoned in 1970 following a Marxist revolution, this flag was readopted in 1991.
