In France, there are six national symbols that represent the Republic:

Le Drapeau Tricolore
The first of six symbols is the French flag. It consists of three colors blue, white and red that are designed in vertical stripes and divided equally across the flag. Blue is nearest to the hoist, followed by white in the center and red at the flying end. Blue and red colors are symbols of Paris, the capital city of France. White represents French royalty who still existed when the flag was first used at the beginning of the French Revolution in 1789.

"La Marseillaise"
Also one of the symbols of the French Revolution, "La Marseillaise" was written and composed by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle, Captain of the Engineers in the Rhine Army, when he was posted in Strasbourg in 1792. He originally created this song to be chanted during the march of the army from Marseilles to Paris. "La Marseillaise" was accepted as the official French national anthem in 1795.
