The flag of Mauritius consists of four horizontal bands of red, blue, yellow, and green, arranged from top to bottom. The red band symbolizes the struggle for independence and the bloodshed of the nation’s heroes. The blue band represents the Indian Ocean, which surrounds Mauritius, while the yellow band represents the bright future and the golden sunshine of the island nation. The green band symbolizes the lush vegetation and agriculture of Mauritius, as well as its vibrant natural environment.

Together, these colors reflect the diversity and unity of the Mauritian people. They also symbolize the aspirations for peace, prosperity, and harmony in their multicultural society.
