The banner o the Central African Republic wis adoptit on December 1, 1958. It wis designed bi Barthélemy Boganda, the first preses o the autonomous territory o Oubangui-Chari, who believed that "Fraunce an Africae must mairch thegither." Thus he combined the blue, white an reid o the French tricolour an the Pan-African colors red, green an yellae.

Accordin tae its offeecial description, red seembolizes the bluid o the fowk o the naition, the bluid that wis spilt in order tae bring it unthirldom, an the bluid that thay woud spill tae pertect thair naition. Blue represents the sky an freedom. White represents peace, an dignity. Green represents hope, an faith. Yellow represents tolerance.

Frae 1976-1979, durin the existence o the Central African Empire, a separate banner wis designed for emperor Jean-Bédel Bokassa's uise. This banner wis licht green in colour, wi a gowd-colored eagle in the center superimposed ower a 20-pyntit gowd starn, inspired bi the eagle on the imperial staundart o Napoleon I. The naition's naitional banner, housomeivver, remained unchynged.[1]
