THE LEGION CONSTITUTES AN INDIVISIBLE WHOLE...
From the general to the merest private, all legionnaires have one purpose : to serve France professionally and well.
The relationship between those who give the orders and those who receive them comes from a highly developped "esprit de corps" based on a few basic principles :
discipline and honor,
a liking for work well done,
an attachment to the past, reinforced by strong traditions.
The traditions of the Foreign Legion are expressed by:
its special uniform,
its music and songs,
its solemn pace for parades,
its ceremonies particular to the Foreign Legion
