The French flag features three vertical stripes of equal size colored in blue, white and red in that order going from left to right. The red and blue colors of the flag are deeply tied in to France’s history. These colors were used in a cockade worn by the Paris Militia who played a large role in the French Revolution and the storming of the Bastille. These two colors were used based on their traditional association with Paris as a city. The white stripe was included after the design of the cockade changed at its adoption by the French National Guard. White is also referred to as the ancient French color. The Tricolor was first recognized as the French national flag in 1790, the flags colors were reversed later on in 1794 and the design has remain unchanged. It was ousted as the national banner in 1815 but readopted in 1830 and has remained unchanged since then.
