France’s far-right leader Marine Le Pen protested on Saturday the placing of the European Union flag over the Arc de Triomphe to mark Paris’s six-month presidency.

Other right-wing politicians, angered by the hoisting of the European flag over the famous French landmark, have joined Le Pen, who appears to be President Emmanuel Macron’s main rival, in next spring’s elections, polls show.
Lu Pan . said in a statement

Decorating the Arc de Triomphe in European Union colors only without the national flag is a real assault on our national identity, because this monument glorifies our military victories and includes the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

There was no immediate comment from the pro-EU Macron, whom Le Pen accuses of giving a “direct order” to place the flag.

But Secretary of State for European Affairs Clement Bonn said the flag-raising was temporary.

“The French flag has not been replaced,” he wrote on Twitter. “The election campaign is not a free pass for lies and petty arguments.”

Macron has not yet revealed his intention to re-run in the April elections, after he beat Le Pen in the second round of the 2017 elections by 66 percent to 34 percent.
