Cuba 4069

     In 2000 Cuba issued a stamp commemorating Che Guevara's revolutionary activities in the former Belgian Congo, now Zaire in 1965. However, the map on the stamp is a map of part of the former French Equitorial Africa, which became independent in 1960 as the People's Republic of the Congo or Congo-Brazzaville to differentiate it from the Belgian Congo or the Democratic Republic of Congo.
