Stylized red "M" with large red star above four smaller four red stars in an arc open to the top on the center of the central panel of a red, white and red horizontal "Spanish" triband of red, white and red.

The "M" stands for Macao, and the five stars refer to China (as in the P.R.C. flag).

Red flag with white stylized bridge outline under five yellow stars set in counterchevron parallel to the bridge "hump". The stars and red background color stand surely for the Chinese flag, and the bridge seems to be Gov. Nobre de Carvalho Bridge.
