Arc de Triomphe
Papers react to the political debate sparked by the decision to fly the European flag from the Arc de Triomphe. Most agree it boils down to political opportunism in an election year, with La Croix pointing out that it's the EU that should be offended for having its flag flown from a monument representing Napoleonic conquest. We also look at 2022's controversial sporting events, a Moroccan YouTuber seeking asylum in France, and a warning for cat owners.
Officials took down a temporary European Union flag at the Arc de Triomphe in Paris after it drew fury from conservatives and the far right. The flag was intended to mark the start of France's six-month EU presidency.
