The Democratic Republic of Congo

Why I chose to represent the Congo on my pencil case?

Primarily I chose to represent the Congo by making a pencil case because I liked the colours. I also chose to represent it like this because I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to learn and to make a pencil case on a country I didn’t know anything about.
