## Abstract

Based on the Galilean relativity principle and the experimental observation that the vacuum behaves like a carrier medium (EM substratum) for EM waves and fields, generalized Galilei behaves like a carrier medium (EM substratum) for EM waves and fields, generalized Galilei covariant Maxwell equations are derived. The generalized Maxwell equations for inertial frames [](w) with substratum flow contain explicitly the substratum velocity w, and reduce to the usual Maxwell equations when w[]o. As illustrations, (i) the field invariants in transformations between inertial frames, and (ii) electric and magnetic induction in reference frames with substratum flow w, are discussed.
