Congo Coat of Arms T-Shirt - Through its history Congo has gone by many names: Congo Free State, Belgian Congo, Congo-Léopoldville, Congo-Kinshasa, and Zaire. These days it is generally known as DR Congo to distinguish it from its neighbor, Republic of the Congo. The motto "Justice Paix Travail" translates as "Justice, Peace, Work." This was the coat of arms for the Democratic Republic of the Congo from 1964 - 1997. The current coat of arms is similar to this, but the leopard head is flanked by the elephant tusk and one spear. The branch and second spear are gone, but the motto is the same. You'll look fierce in this Congo t-shirt.
