The All People's Congress is a major political party in Sierra Leone.
It governed the country from 1968 to 1992, and became the ruling party
again in 2007. The APC has traditionally been based among the
Temne and their ally the Limba in the Northern Province. In 1978, the
APC became the sole legal party in the country.
The party's flag can be seen on their homepage, here: http://apc.homestead.com/files/apclogo.jpg
The RUF emerged in March 1991 to "topple the government of Sierra Leone
and retain control of the lucrative diamond producing regions of the
country." (Source: http://www.worldstatesmen.org/Terrorist.html#RUF.
They "fought a failed ten-year insurrection in Sierra Leone, starting
in 1991 and ending in 2002. It later developed into a political party,
which existed until 2007. After peace was established, RUF was
converted into a political party, the RUFP (Revolutionary United Front
Party). In July 2007, RUFP merged with the All People's Congress".
