France flag meaning

The Flag

The French Flag has 3 straight lines equally across by the same size. From the flagstaff to the end, these colors are blue, white, and red. About more than 20 countries have these three colors in their flag, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia.


The meaning of the flag colors are deep real in the country and in the history. The most traditional colors of the flag in pre-revolution France had a white background on the back with a blue shield and the gold with the royal coat of arms. After the french revolution the country leaders wanted a simple design that had the new values of the nation and French culture.
