Independence Day in Mauritius

March 12th marks the 48th anniversary of MAURITIUS gaining its independence from the United Kingdom in 1968. Mauritians are celebrating National Day with festivities and feasts of local food. They might also be celebrating their country's growing economic prosperity, not to mention the picturesque island's beauty. Upon independence in 1968, Mauritius started flying the flag below. Happy Independence Day to the citizens of Mauritius!
