Today I would like to focus on the Republique Française Liberté Égalité Fraternité – 1789, which was designed for the 200 year anniversary of the French republic. In his design, Joachim Metz, celebrates France becoming a Republic and perhaps it was not Paris that was his inspiration, however, I found many references here.

The French revolution, which began in 1789, paved the way for France to become a republic in 1792 and Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité French for “Freedom, Equality, Brotherhood”, became the national motto. I, of course, must also mention Marianne, whom Metz so beautifully portrayed on this scarf. Marienne is France’s national emblem. She represents liberty and is an icon for freedom and democracy.

I found Marianne in many places in Paris. On government buildings, statues and many other landmarks. Marianne is one of the most prominent symbols of the French Republic, and is officially used on most government documents.

Marianne is a significant French republican symbol. She is Republique Française, she is Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité.

Made in France

Excellent condition, light creases and rubbing due to long term storage, which like a brand new one at first glance.
