|Adopted||February 18, 2006 |
The flag of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, also called the DRC or Congo (Kinshasa), is light blue with a thick red diagonal stripe coming from the lower hoist to the upper fly, with two thinner yellow stripes on the sides of it. In the canton area of the flag is a large yellow five-pointed star.
Blue stands for peace, Red stands for bloodshed of those who fight for the country, Yellow stands for the country's wealth and the star is a radiant future for the country.
