Even, what are these symbols of the Napoleonic flag?

To break with the monarchy, it was in 1804 that Napoleon decided that it was time for France to find a new flag.

Many French lucky charms were proposed to serve as emblems, the government of the time decided to retain only a few.

The eagle is the main element of the Napoleonic flag of the first empire. Emblem of Imperial Rome, this bird has long been associated with military victories.

Symbol of immortality and resurrection, the bee was chosen to link the new Napoleonic dynasty to the most ancient origins of France.

Created to decorate soldiers and civilians who have distinguished themselves through their actions, the Legion of Honor also takes its origins (at least its name) from the Roman Empire. You can see one hanging below the Napoleonic flag.

The hand of justice and the royal scepter are two attributes of the kings of France. The scepter is a sign of the supreme authority of the emperor. The hand symbolizes his impartiality.

You can also see the crown and imperial mantle covering the emblem present on the Napoleonic flag.

Of scarlet velvet decorated with bees, bunches of grapes, golden fringes, and lined with ermine, the cape is held in place by the imperial crown.

Note, however, that a Christian cross has been maintained above this crown.

With so many French lucky charms, each more significant than the last, the Napoleonic flag of the first empire is certainly an interesting subject of study for lovers of French history.
