Mauritius Flag

The national flag of Mauritius, also known as the Four Stripes or, in French, Les Quatre Bandes, was adopted in 1968, when Mauritius became independent. There are four equal horizontal stripes in red, blue, yellow, and green, representing bloodshed (during slavery), the Indian Ocean, the light of independence and sunshine, and the lush vegetation of the island.
