President Joseph Kabila of the Democratic Republic of Congo promulgated a new Congolese post-war constitution on 18 February 2006  which makes provision of a new flag and emblem. During a ceremony at the presidential palace in Kinshasa, February 18, 2006, the Democratic Republic of Congo adopted a new constitution aimed at bringing an end to decades of dictatorship, war and chaos in the vast country, and paving the way for elections by mid-2006.

I just heard on the news that the Democratic Republic of Congo has a new constitution. The "new" flag that was raised is the same design as that used between 1963-1971. Only the blue I believe is lighter in colour.

According to a press report at : 'The blue in the flag symbolises peace; red the blood of the country's martyrs; yellow the country's wealth; and the star a radiant future for the country.'
