Mauritius President flag
image by Željko Heimer, 25 Mar 2003

The emblem of the Mauritius’ president is available online at the official website. It shows the initials "RM" red, not golden, as they were reported earlier.

Unconfirmed variant

Mauritius Pr. err. flag
image by Željko Heimer, 15 Jun 2002

According to one of latest issues of Vexilologie [vex], the flag of the president of the Republic of Mauritius is white with the arms, under it there are two golden laurel (?) branches; between the arms and the branches, golden initials "RM".
Jan Zrzavy, 06 Oct 2002

That flag is shown on Album des Pavillons [pay00] (with proportion 14:25) but marked «unconfirmed».
Ivan Sache, 06 Oct 2002

It is reasonably confirmed: The presidential flag has been adopted on 12 March 1992 (when Mauritius became republic) and is depicted on a 10-rupee stamp (FotW stamp #00023 issued in 1992. Vexilologie [vex] 121: 2264 refers two sources:

  1. Flag Bulletin XXXII:2/151: 92 [smi93c]
  2. «personal information by U. Zeiler to L. Mucha, based on catalogue of postage stamps Briefmarke (Sammler Express 11/92)»
Jan Zrzavy, 09 Oct 2002

Primary source is the stamp, Album des Pavillons information comes from that, and to the best of my knowledge the actual flag has not been seen; so I suggest to keep it as «unconfirmed».
Armand du Payrat, 09 Oct 2002

In Vexilla Nostra [vxn] 187 (july-august 1993) an enlarged photocopy of a stamp is shown. This stamp is white with the arms, the initials RM and two branches, and apart from that the texts «The President’s Flag», «Proclamation 12 march 1992», the value of the stamp «Rs10» and the name «Republic of Mauritius». This could be evidence, but we also know that there are many stamps with flag errors. Especially issued by those countries who have their stamps designed and/or printed abroad.
