La Fête Nationale — or Bastille Day is being honoured by Google Doodle today.

Bastille Day is marked as a celebration of culture. Every year during this time, French people all around the world gather to honour their heritage and pay respect to those who fought for the three main pillars vis-à-vis; liberty, equality and fraternity.

The Bastille stood for the powers of the king. French people gathered in great number and attacked the fortified prison war and freed the six prisoners. The anger of the mob scared the king forcing him to give in to their demands.

Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris is crowded with people who come there to enjoy to parades, thereby moving towards the Eiffel Tower for fireworks and live music.

Vieux Port in Marseille is the venue for the two-day celebration. La Marseillaise, the French national anthem resounds throughout the streets.

In today’s Doodle, a procession of blue, white, and red hens and roosters enjoy a Bastille Day parade.

Bonne Fête Nationale!
