On Sunday, French authorities removed a temporary European Union (EU) flag installation from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris after opponents of right-wing President Emmanuel Macrono accused him of “deleting” his French identity.

A giant blue flag in place of the French flag in the Arc de Triomphe shone on New Year’s Eve, marking the start of the French presidency of the EU Council, which the country will chair for the next six months.

In addition, the Arc de Triomphe, the Eiffel Tower, the Pantheon and other famous sites and monuments in Paris will be illuminated with blue lights symbolizing the EU until the end of the week.

Macrono’s right-wing rivals in the four-month presidential election have called for the EU flag to be removed, calling it an insult to France’s heritage and its veterans.

Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen has vowed to appeal to the Council of State, France’s highest administrative court, over the flag.

However, French presidency officials say the removal of the flag early Sunday morning, before dawn, was on schedule. It is said that, unlike the blue-lit monuments, the flag had to adorn the Arc de Triomphe for only two days.
