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 did'nt 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.

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.)
