dc.description.abstract "Le vieux drapeau" is part of a poem/song by the famous singer and poet, Pierre Jean de Béranger (1780–1857). The appearance of this print shows a reverence towards Daumier's fellow compatriot fighting the restoration movement. An old soldier with a white beard is holding on to the French flag against the dark sky over Paris in the background. Le "vieux drapeau" is also the old flag of the Revolution against the Empire, it replaced the "drapeau blanc" representing the Bourbon flag. The end of July also signified the end of the reign of Charles X. On July 30, Louis-Philippe, was appointed lieutenant general under the sponsorship of Lafayette. He appointed Lafayette as commander of the National Guard and inaugurated a cabinet composed of De Broglie, Perier, Dupin, Guizot, and Gérard. On August 9, Louis-Philippe took the oath of office at the age of 57.
