French blue is a color that is traditionally used to represent France.

It is a shade of blue that has a hue angle of 203.4 degrees, a saturation of 100%, and a lightness of 36.7%.

In the RGB color model, it has red, green, and blue values of 0, 114, and 187, respectively.

In the CMYK color model, it has cyan, magenta, yellow, and black values of 100%, 39%, 0%, and 27%, respectively.

French blue has been used in the heraldry of the French monarchy since at least the 12th century, with the golden fleurs-de-lis of the kings always set on a blue background.

A brighter version, based on the blue of the French Tricolour, is used in modern times, especially in sports.

French national teams in all sports usually wear blue as their main color.

Blue is also France's national racing color, and many French motorsport teams have used it, such as Alpine, Bugatti, Matra, and Peugeot.

French blue is a strong and vivid color that can create a sense of elegance, patriotism, and sophistication.

It can be paired with other colors to create different effects.

For example, French blue and white can create a classic and crisp contrast, while French blue and yellow can create a warm and cheerful combination.

French blue and red can create a bold and dynamic contrast, while French blue and green can create a cool and refreshing harmony.
