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
