    I can't tell you much more than that the French flag is made of stripes not rectangles; and when you mount yours, the cross of Lorraine is pointing sideways.

    It would make sense to me if the banner was designed to be suspended vertically that the colours would read blue, white and red and that the cross and "v" for victory would also read vertically on the banner. The "blue" segment looks very dark gray or black in the photo?

    Not seen such a banner before. Interesting, thanks for posting.
