The annual Bastille Day march – imprinting a attack of a Bastille jail in 1789, an eventuality that helped hint a French Revolution – has been holding place in Paris.
Here are some of a many distinguished images from a celebrations.
The day’s events saw France’s Alpha Jets fly past a Arc de Triomphe…
… and over a Louvre art museum. But a pretentious perspective was somewhat injured by an apparent confusion of colours representing a French flag.
President Emmanuel Macron and his mother Brigitte were there.
Mr Macron rode in a jeep alongside a French army arch of staff Gen François Lecointre and a French Republican Guard on a French capital’s famous Champs-Elysées avenue.
Earlier this year, Mr Macron introduced a devise to move behind inhabitant use for all 16-year-olds as a approach of compelling a clarity of county avocation and inhabitant togetherness among French youth.

Singaporean troops, seen here, and Japanese soldiers were also invited to take partial in a parade.
Last year US infantry participated, imprinting 100 years given US army entered World War One, and President Donald Trump was a guest of honour.
Gendarmes, firefighters and other units assimilated this year’s parade.
There were many opposite charming uniforms on arrangement – a Alpine Hunters marched in white.
The wrong plume of fume was not a usually fumble – these dual gendarmes on motorbikes collided as they traced patterns around a Place de la Concorde.
Mr Macron and a throng applauded as they righted their bikes.
But things went a small some-more uniformly for a attempt bikers of a Republican Guard.
