About the flag

The city of Port-Louis has its own flag, flown with the national flag on the portal of the city hall (Port-Louis flag on the left, Mauritius flag on the right). Both had the same proportions, but it didn’t look like they were 2:3, as the national flag should be. I would rather say 3:5. The flag of Port-Louis is a banner of arms, bearing four anchors and five fleur-de-lys.
Olivier Touzeau, 19 Dec 2003

The flag of Port-Louis is a kind of canting flag is we “read” the anchors as "port" and the yellow fleur-de-lys on blue as "king of France", i.e. "Louis". (It seems that Port-Louis should be written Port Louis in English.)

Wind signal flags

A coworker just returned from Port-Louis reported no beach flags for bathers’ safety but yes a “traffic light” flag system in use in the lagoon for wind conditions, aimed at practitionners of windsurf and similar sports:

  • Red for dangerous wind, no practice;
  • yellow for caution needed, seasoned practitionners only; and
  • green for fair conditions, rookies allowed to go, too.

Le Caudan Waterfront

Port-Louis flag
António Martins, 28 Apr 2010

In Port-Louis, the most frequently seen flag, except the national one, is the flag of the Waterfront zone: blue with "Port-Louis waterfront" logo. Situated on the south side of the harbour Place d’Armes, the Waterfront (Le Caudan Waterfront) is a recent hotel, leisure and shopping complex.
Olivier Touzeau, 19 Dec 2003

The said logo is online (at an official webpage), with purple casual carve letters reading "Port Louis", above a line of regular bold black capitals reading "waterfront" and under a stylized landscape featuring a palm, a beach hut, a sea wave, and a thing that looks like "XX". Online photos I found seem to show light blue flags, possibly with the logo: this one undated and this one taken in 2009.11. (Another photo, undated, shows plain flags in different shades of blue.)
