The Comoros can be found in the Indian Ocean between the east coast of Africa and the island of Madagascar. If you were to sail straight from the Comoros to Africa, you would land in Mozambique. In case you don’t get lost.
The Comoros is an archipelago consisting of four main islands, with only three of the four islands belonging to the Union of the Comoros. The fourth main island belongs to France. The area of the island state is 1862 square kilometers.
The name of the islands is of Arabic origin and means “lunar islands”.
If you take a close look at the three islands on the map (it is best to click on the photo and enlarge it) and connect them in your imagination, then a moon-like structure is actually created.
The fourth island of Mayotte does not belong to the state of the Comoros, but to France. However, the Comoros also lay claim to this fourth island. This can be seen from the flag of the country, which is composed of the individual flags of all four islands.
