Questions about electricity

I am trying to hang a lamp in my kitchen and I ran into a problem - there are 3 wires coming out of the ceiling. One is yellow-green, which I suspect is "ground". the other 2 are red and blue, and I don't know how to connect them to the lamp. There are two connections one is marked L and the other N. Anybody has an idea?

Re: Questions about electricity

Connect the Red to L and the Blue to N. Yellow/green is indeed ground.
