The traditional French red-blue-white tricolor πŸ‡«πŸ‡· 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.
