Nous sommes le lundi dix sept juillet

What an amazing emblem, patriotes of France. I found this insignia in my photos but cannot remember where it has come from and who the "patriotes" are. Any ideas anyone?
As long as it is not something taken over by the National Front.( like the flag of England, the flag of St. George that the racist wing seems to have co opted as their own)
Happy research readers
Malc says: "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel" - Dr Johnson I think, and true to form this organisation is a Front National attempt to persuade the gullible (plus other less scrupulous politicians and thinkers) that far right policies are somehow "patriotic". Launched a few years ago by Florian Phllipot, vice president (though perhaps for not much longer?) of the FN, the "network" is quite clearly an attempt to promote an on-line presence for ultra right wing views.
