Arago: Flag of France

Flag of France

The seventh stamp in the Overrun Countries Series features the flag of France in red, white, and blue. Germany invaded France in June 1940. It annexed Alsace and Lorraine, the rest of northern France was occupied, and a puppet government was established in Vichy in the unoccupied south of France. Germany occupied the south by 1942. A Free French government in exile was established under the leadership of General Charles DeGaulle.
