Le Drapeau (The Flag)

Hollande declared a national day of mourning and encouraged the French to display the French flag.

The government buildings of Paris were lit up with the Tricolor – the French flag.  Blue, White and Red (you must get the order correct or you are confusing us with the US).

And many private buildings were too.

Flags were slow to come out – probably because French folk don’t own flags.  I saw a number with the folds still showing their newness.  Small ones here and there.  2015-11-29 19.39.25Some even resorted to creative ways of showing the blue, white and red.2015-12-01 21.37.51



And now I am seeing Tricolor for sale in the newsstands.  The plane with the shipment from China probably arrived a few days ago.
