The country consists of three of the four main islands
in the volcanic Comoros archipelago: Grande Comore, Mohéli and Anjouan.
The fourth island in the island group, Mayotte, is not part of the
country. Mayotte has voted against independence from France, but
is claimed by Comoros. The country's territory also encompasses
many smaller islands. Its name derives from the Arabic word qamar
"moon", as seen depicted on its flag.
