The rooster is the unofficial symbol of France. The relationship between a rooster and France dates back to the Middle Ages due to the play on words in Latin between Gallus, meaning an inhabitant of Gaul, and gallus, meaning rooster, or cockerel.
The Gallic rooster, colloquially named Chanteclair, had been a national emblem ever since, especially during the Third French Republic. The rooster was featured on the reverse of French 20-franc gold pieces from 1899 to 1914. After World War I it was depicted on uncountable war memorials.
A rooster can be observed on the garden gate of the Palais de l’Elysée in Paris, the official residence of the President of the French Republic.
