Junior European Affairs Minister Clement Beaune, who on Friday had said the flag would remain for “several days,” said it had been taken down as planned.
“It was scheduled that the flag was to be taken down this Sunday, we hadn’t established an exact time,” Beaune told France Inter radio.
“The government has been forced to remove the EU flag from the Arc de Triomphe, a beautiful patriotic victory at the start of 2022,” Le Pen said on Sunday.
“We didn’t back down, there was no change of plan …I fully assume France’s destiny is in Europe,” Beaune said.
