The “regional flag of the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China,” also known as the “flag of Macau,” is a light green flag with a stylized image of the Governador Nobre de Carvalho Bridge and water in white, above which is a golden lotus flower, and beneath is a circular arc of five golden five-pointed stars.

The lotus flower is the floral emblem of Macau, the bridge, one of the most recognizable landmarks in the territory, symbolizes the connection between the Macau Peninsula and the island of Taipa, and the water beneath the lotus and the bridge denotes Macau's position as a port and its significance as a major gateway. The green color of the flag stands for Macau's peace and prosperity. The five five-pointed stars, which mimic the style of the People's Republic of China flag, signify Macau's ties with its sovereign state, The People's Republic of China.

The green flag with five stars, a lotus flower, a bridge, and sea water was officially adopted in accordance with the Basic Law of Macau, which also specified that “Apart from displaying the Flag of the People's Republic of China, the Macao Special Administrative Region may also use a regional flag.”

Country information

Macau, also spelled Macao, is a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China. Located on the western side of the Pearl River Delta, Macau is situated east of Hong Kong and southwest of Guangzhou. It is a small, densely populated territory with an area of 30.5 square miles (79 square kilometers) and a population of about 675,000 people.

Macau was a Portuguese colony from the mid-16th century until 1999, when it was returned to Chinese sovereignty. It is the last remaining European colony in Asia. Under Portuguese rule, Macau became a major trading port and the center of a thriving economy based on agriculture, fishing, and trade. The Portuguese introduced many elements of Western culture to Macau, including Catholicism, which is still the dominant religion.

Macau has a unique blend of Chinese and Portuguese culture, which is reflected in its cuisine, architecture, and way of life. The city is famous for its casinos and luxury hotels, which attract millions of tourists each year. It is also home to a number of historical and cultural landmarks, including the Ruins of St. Paul's, the A-Ma Temple, and the Macau Museum.

Since the transfer of sovereignty to China, Macau has maintained a high degree of autonomy and is governed by a separate legal system from mainland China. It has its own currency, the pataca, and a separate immigration and customs system. It also has a separate judiciary, which is based on the Portuguese legal system.

Despite its small size, Macau has a strong economy and is an important financial and business center in the region. Its GDP per capita is among the highest in the world, and it has a low unemployment rate. Its economy is primarily based on tourism and gaming, with a growing service sector. Macau has a high standard of living and is known for its high levels of education and healthcare.
