Compressor wiring

I bought a used "China" made 220v air compressor that was direct wired. Could someone tell me how the wires would be connected to a new plug with brown, green/yellow, and blue wires? Thanks!

You also need to show a pic of the plug end and figure out which color goes to which plug blade. What gauge wire is the cord made with? and how long is it going to be?

Charles

After looking again is the pic showing a new cord with a plug on the other end or is the pic showing what is still connected to the compressor? If the latter we need to see the connections to the pressure switch

I believe it is European code.
Green/Yellow, ground.
Blue, one side of 220 circuit.
Brown, other side of 220 circuit.
