ACU Cockade

A circle of ribbons, usually worn on a hat. The cockade of the revolution represented the colors we see today in the French flag - blue, white, and red, sometimes known as the Tricolore.

The idea of the three color flag was presented to Louis XVI by Lafayette during their meeting at the Hôtel de Ville on July 17th 1789. Next to the blue and red colors of the cockade of Paris, Lafayette had added the white cockade of the Monarchy, conferring upon the Sovereign a central role in the new definition of powers.*
* Note that the king didn't last, but his symbol did.
