About the flag

I was last week in Mauritius, and had the opportunity to make some flag observations there: A frequently seen flag is the one of the Mauritius Police Force, wich can be seen in front of the police stations. It looked 1:2, is dark blue, and bears in the centre the emblem of the police badge: in a white laurel wreath, with the national coat of arms at the top, the three letters "MPF" in white, and, at the bottom, the inscription "Mauritius" (in the centre), "police" (left) and "force" (right). This can be seen at the top of the official webpage.

Car pennant of the Commissioner of Police (Head of Armed Forces); I have taken the photograph a few weeks ago during my visit.

The flag is blue tirangular pennant with silver initials "CP" and the coat of arms within a silver ring (thus apparently reading "COP", but I do not think that it was intention…).

incorrect depiction

Police Chief (err.)

The commissioner of Police pennant I have discovered and published in Album des Pavillons is dark blue and not black.
Michel Lupant, 19 Jun 2005

The only correction (as far as I am aware) in the Corr. 4 [cor04] for Mauritius was correction of the flag of the Commissioner of Police, incorrectly shown in [pay00]. The incorrect interpretation was an error by Armand interpreting the photo Michel Lupant made in Mauritius, who later corrected the colours as per his observation. The black verison with golden letters is just an error but should be retained on the web site to prevent future “discoveries” of this flag, if you know what I mean…
