Royal Standard of Kingdom of France (1632-1790)
The French Royal standard is white with a semy of yellow fleurs-de-lis and the greater arms of the kingdom placed in the middle. The Medal of the Order of the Holy Spirit (Ordre du Saint-Esprit) is appended to the arms. The most famous of the Orders of Chivalry in ancient France, the Order of the Holy Spirit was created by King Henry III in 1578; suppressed in 1791, the Order was reestablished in 1815-1830. Accordingly, the flag shown above cannot have been used before the end of the 16th century. This flag was mostly used as a royal standard. In the French monarchy, of divine essence, the concept of "state" in its modern sense, could not exist. The identification of the Kingdom to the King peaked with Louis XIV, whose motto L'État, c'est moi (I am the State) reflects the concept of absolute monarchy[1].
