Jeune Nation was a French nationalist movement founded by Albert Heuclin, and with members including Jean Marot, Jacques Wagner and the brothers Sidos, François Sidos (president of the movement), Jacques Sidos and Pierre Sidos (secretary general and later president).


The emblem of Jeune Nation was the Celtic cross, "symbol of universal life" and an element of Christian imagery.
