The national flag of the Republic of Congo is divided diagonally into two halves by a
yellow band running through the center; the upper triangle, towards the hoist side is green and the lower triangle is red. These are the traditional Pan-African colors; it is the fifth national flag to use these colors. The Congo Brazzaville flag was initially adopted on August 18, 1958 but was abandoned in 1970. Twenty-one years later on June 10, 1991, the flag was re-introduced as the official flag of the Republic.
