However, in the draw, local players are shown with the Martinique flag and abbreviation (MRN).

It's an interesting discrepancy.
Martiniue as Guadeloupe were French colonies, but now they are kind of bailiwicks. They are not independant countries, but they are half independant in the French Republic. It's a little bit like Scottland, Wales or North Ireland in the UK
