Tricolore

Q 69

From theTown Hall Square in the french city of Le Havre.

Tricolore means three colors and is the name of the french flag (le drapeau tricolore).
The three colors have been associated with “Liberty, equality, fraternity”
Liberté ‘EgalitéFraternité
which was the slogan during the french revolution,
but represents in fact from start the King (white) and Paris (blue and red).
In fairness it should be mentioned that many other countries flag consists of three colors.
