The French Tricolour Flies Proudly

Karyn Planett

 

 

The French flag features three bands of color … the red and blue are considered Paris’ traditional colors.  The white stripe was added to identify with the nation of France, according to Lafayette, while some historians claim it relates to the French monarchy instead.  Other theories exist about the symbolism and the religious significance but one commonly-held belief is that these colors represent the trio of components of the French motto .. "liberté, égalité, and fraternité" … "freedom, equality, and brotherhood”.  Whichever you choose to believe, believe in the resilience of the French people and their ability to rebound from the recent events in Paris.  It remains the same magnificent city I visited as a 6-year-old as well as many, many times since.
