The French flag is generally called the French Tricolour or simply the Tricolour by the English. The French commonly refer to the flag as 'drapeau tricolore', a tricolour means that three colours are featured, and in this case vertical stripes of royal blue, white and red are featured respectively from the hoist side of the French flag. The 'tricolore' was derived from cockades (circular rosette-like emblems attached to the hat ) used during the french revolution.
