République Française

Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité: “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” is the French motto.

Hexagonal-shaped France belongs to both Northern and Southern Europe (see The Travel Guide: Northwestern Europe) and is the only country bordered by the North Sea, Atlantic Ocean, and the Mediterranean Sea on three sides. Centrally-located within Western Europe, two of its sides are bordered by the Alps and the Pyrenees Mountains.
