HI Manhua LI , former means past , soemthing that existed in the past and doesnt exist anymore . colony means a country, land or district taken by force and inhabitated by others , it is thus colonized . So it being former colonies in your sentence means it has probably gained its independence and is not colonized anymore , i hope you the meaning is clear enough , Zai jian ;)
