The National Flag of France was introduced in 1848 by the French Second Republic, shortly after the French Revolution. It has become one of the most well-known flags around the world, with other nations adopting the famous tricolour flag design. The colours, red, white and blue were inspired by the 10-year Revolution with the three colours representing liberty, equality and fraternity. Blue and red are also the traditional colours of Paris, while white has been a colour that has always been associated with the French flag.
