According to Album des pavillons nationaux et des marques distinctives (National flags and distinctive markings) (2000 edition) [pay00], the Congo uses a classical roundel of green-yellow-red.

The l'Armee de l'Air du Congo was formed on June 1961.

Cochrane & Elliott (1998) [cos98] report that until 1970 the only aircraft marking was the national flag as a fin flash.

Aircraft marking (1970-1991)

Adapted from

When the country became the People's Republic of Congo in 1970 a new roundel based on the new flag was introduced and the new flag was used as the fin flash. 

In 1991, the original roundel was re-introduced and it is also used as the fin flash.
