Description of the Gendarmerie colours

Only the Cavalry Regiment of the Republican Guard has a standard. There are 50 flags for the other Gendarmerie regiments. On the reverse, besides the motto "HONNEUR ET PATRIE", there can also be : "VALEUR ET DISCIPLINE", as prescribed by Instruction No. 26600/DEF/GEND/OE/ORG relative au patrimoine de tradition des unités de la gendarmerie nationale, 18 October 1993 (text).

The design of the colours follows the general pattern used for the colours of the French Army.
