The l'Armee de l'Air du Congo was formed on June 1961.
Cochrane & Elliott, 1998, [cos98] reports that until 1970
the only marking were the national flag as fin flash.
adapted from www.skytamer.com
As Congo became People's Republic of Congo in 1970 a new roundel based on
the flag was intreduced with the new flag as fin flash.

The change back in 1991 (1992) brought a new roundel. Classic green-yellow-red (also as fin flash) as seen at http://www.skytamer.com/roundels/congo/03.htm. See also http://www.acig.org/artman/uploads/facb_mig-21bis_511_001.jpg.
Cochrane & Elliott, 1998, [cos98] report that the due of lack of green, the centre was noted in black and show the roundel with center in black. I guess that they already bought the color in the mean time...
