France: EU flag removed from Arc de Triomphe after causing stir
Junior European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune, who on Friday had actually stated the flag would stay for “several days,” stated it had actually been removed as prepared.
“It was scheduled that the flag was to be taken down this Sunday, we hadn’t established an exact time,” Beaune informed France Inter radio.
“The government has been forced to remove the EU flag from the Arc de Triomphe, a beautiful patriotic victory at the start of 2022,” Le Pen stated on Sunday.
“We didn’t back down, there was no change of plan …I fully assume France’s destiny is in Europe,” Beaune stated.
