The traditional French red-blue-white tricolor became a symbol of freedom during the French Revolution in the late 18th century. These colors were decorating roundels of revolutionists and the tricolor was carried in 1789 during the conquest of the Bastille, when political prisoners held by the old regime were freed. This day is considered to be the beginning of the French Revolution, and the tricolor remained in the minds of Frenchmen associated with the creation of modern French Republic. All three stripes on the flag are displayed vertically and have the same width. The blue stripe is located on the left side of the flag, white in the middle, and the red one on the right side.
The teeming glam of Paris makes for one hell of a centrepiece, matching any city on the planet for ambiance, individuality, and set-piece sights. But the real beauty of France, in many ways, lies elsewhere. The country’s natural gifts are striking with white sandy beaches, hulking mountains and swathes of rolling countryside. It’s a land that has inspired dreamers and drinkers, revolutionaries and artists.
You can soak up the A-list beaches of the Cote d’Azur, drowse in the timeless greenery of the Loire Valley or gaze up at the monumental peaks of the Alps. Wander the lavender fields of Provence, eat your way around the legendary bistros of Lyon or sample the rugged charm of Corsica. France’s cities, coastline, and countryside all have their own endearing rewards, and when taken as a whole, they present a near-perfect visitor package.
