Proper noun[edit]

l'Hexagone

  1. mainland of France
    • 1970, Robert Beauvais, L’hexagonal tel qu’on le parle:
      Qu’est-ce que l’Hexagone ? C’est la France. Mais le mot «France», entaché d’une affectivité suspecte, petite-bourgeoise, tend à basculer vers le folklore ; le langage contemporain lui préfère celui d’Hexagone qui, dans sa pureté fonctionnelle, semble mieux adapté à la définition d’une grande nation moderne.
      What is the "Hexagon"? It is France. But the word "France", blemished by a suspect, petit bourgeois affectivity, tends to fall into folklore; the contemporary language prefers "Hexagon", which, in its functional purity, seems better adapted to the definition of a great modern nation.
