In the middle of Le Grande Arche, flying of the structure for the elevators, I found the Tricolor. The wall behind is the inside of the arch and as you can see it is a fairly standard office wall when you get this close. I think it is even safe to say that it could do with some maintenance as it has stood there for 20 years in the smokey city air.

All those hard lines--and then the flag! Fine work, nice contrasts, interesting geometry!

It's not always nice to come too close, Ebbe, then the magic of the arch is gone! But the French flag is suitable as a substitute - it's a beauty. And the movement and softness of the "drapeau" are a nice contrast to the strictness and monotony of the building. Well captured!
I've definitely never been close to this structure!

Colors matter textures, the flag contrasts agreeably with the background

It could definitely use some cleaning up. Lots of soot there. A building in Detroit with decades of grime like this was beautifully cleaned. It gleans now. But it makes good grime for your shot. And the flag really stands out with its bright, clean, look and colors. The window reflections are very nice, too. Another great shot of the Grande Arche.

Great to watch this angle of Le Grande Arche - not normaly seen and with a good reason ;-) Grey in a very "grey way" if I may say so.
Its also nice to watch the reflections in the windows and of course the flag which light up in the greyness - very nice work Ebbe.
