History

The Vexillological Association of Réunion selected a flag in 2003. It depicts the volcano of Fournaise, bedecked by gold sunbeams. It was designed in 1974 by Guy Pignolet who called it Lö Mahavéli but it really started to be promoted once the association chose it in 2003. It doesn't have official recognition but since 2014, it is flying on top of many public buildings after several city councils have taken the decision to do so.

Independentists and nationalists of Reunion also have their flag (green, yellow, red) which was created in 1986. [0]

Meaning

Red for the volcano and strength, blue for the sky and sweetness, yellow for the sun and clearness. [1]
