Republic Day (Republic of the Congo)

Republic Day is a public holiday in the Republic of the Congo, and it is observed on November 28 each year. The holiday commemorates the anniversary when the Republic of the Congo was established on this day in 1958.

The Republic of the Congo is a country located on the western coast of Central Africa. Indigenous people had inhabited the territory for thousands of years before the arrival of Europeans in 1484. In the following centuries, European merchants and Indigenous people developed commercial relationships for various commodities.

The territory became a French protectorate in 1880 and then a colony in 1886. In 1903, the colony was renamed as Middle Congo, and it became part of French Equatorial Africa (AEF) in 1908, together with Gabon, Chad, and the Central African Republic.

Following the dissolution of French Equatorial Africa (AEF) after a referendum in 1958, each of its constituent parts became an autonomous state within the French Community. Middle Congo became the autonomous republic as the Republic of the Congo on November 28, 1958.
