The flag of Paris.

The flag of Paris is vertically divided between the traditional colours of Paris, blue and red, both of which also feature in the city's coat of arms. Blue is identified with Saint Martin, red with Saint Denis.

The colours of Paris are the origin of the blue and red stripes in the French flag (Lafayette described the white stripe as symbolising the nation, other accounts identify it with the monarchy).[1]
