The traditional provincial flag, gules, two lions passant or, is used in both former regions of France: Lower Normandy and Upper Normandy. It is based on the design of arms which had been attributed by medieval heralds to William the Conqueror, ultimately related to the 12th-century coat of arms of the House of Anjou.
The red flag with two leopards is nicknamed les p’tits cats “the little cats” in Norman. The three-leopards version (known in the Norman language as les treis cats, “the three cats”) may also be seen, which is based on the coat of arms of Richard I of England. The arms De gueules aux deux léopards d’or, armés et lampassés d’azur, passant l’un sur l’autre (Gules two leopards passant gardant in pale or armed and langued azure) was described by Jacques Meurgey in 1941.
