Information about Symbol: Coat of Arms of the Republic of the Congo

Coat of Arms of the Republic of the Congo

The Coat of Arms of the Republic of the Congo has a shield with a rampant red lion holding a torch. The background colour of the shield is gold with a green, wavy, horizontal stripe along the middle. A golden crown sits above the shield. Two large African elephants support the shield. A banner with the national motto "UNITÉ TRAVAIL PROGRÈS" ("Unity, Work, Progress") is draped from a bar supporting the elephants.

The arms were adopted in 1960 and readopted in 1991 after having been replaced with a simpler, un-heraldic symbol during the People's Republic of the Congo era from 1970 until 1991.

In heraldic terminology, the Coat of Arms is described as follows:
- Or, a fess wavy vert, a lion gules, armed and langued vert, overall, maintaining a torch sable flamed gules.
- A special forest crown.
- The shield is supported by two elephants sable tusked or, issuing from the flanks of the shield and sustained on a tree trunk gules.
- On the circle or of the forest crown: "République du Congo" in letters gules upon a scroll or.
- Motto "Unité - Travail - Progrès" in letters gules upon a scroll or.
