Electrical wiring question in Belgium

Hello everyone,

I am attempting to install a new light fixture in our Apartment in Brussels. I think I have the wiring down correctly. The light turns on but does not turn off.

I have connected the Blue wire to the N terminal, the Red/Brown wire to the Ground, and the Yellow wire to the L terminal.

Is this correct? Am I missing something? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

John

Obviously it's not correct and yes you are missing something :)  Advice, next time call an electrician to resolve the problem correctly and safely!  Don't mess around with something you don't understand!.

L = live terminal
N = neutral terminal

Blue = neutral
Yellow/Green = ground/earth
Red = live

Yellow/ green cable is EARTH!
The other two cables can be wired to either cable. To be. consistent and sure connect two cables with same colours. Brown with brown and blue with blue. It
