French Flag Meaning:
The French flag is based on a red, white and blue cockade (a badge of concentric circles) which was worn by King Louis XVI while addressing a revolutionary gathering in Paris. The King had added white to the cockade as it is the traditional color of French royalty. Red and blue are also the traditional livery colors of Paris, the country’s capital city.
The French flag is commonly known as the ‘French Tricolore’, and has been the inspiration for many other flags around the world.
