The Regional flag of the Macau Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is light green with a lotus flower above the stylized Governor Nobre de Carvalho Bridge and water in white, beneath an arc of five gold, five-pointed stars: one large in the center of the arc and four smaller ones.
The lotus was chosen as the floral emblem of Macau. The Governor Nobre de Carvalho Bridge is a bridge linking the Macau Peninsula and the island of Taipa. The bridge is one of the most recognizable landmarks for the territory. The water beneath the lotus and the bridge symbolize Macau's position as a port, and its role played in the territory. The five five-pointed stars echo the design of the flag of the People's Republic of China, symbolizing the relationship Macau has with its mother country.
