According to reports coming out of Libya the French Flag is flying high throughout the country. The French government are very popular in Libya at the moment, the French flag is being waved throughout the country, especially in ant-government stronghold Benghazi.
Many traders have been doing a brisk trade in both French Flags and the former Republic of Libya flag (replaced by Gaddafi with the all-green flag).
French President Nicolas Sarkozy's name is constantrly chanted by anti-Gaddafi forces, who appreciate his very strong stance against Gaddafi's recent alleged atrocities in Libya. The Libyan public are also appreciative of other governments abroad such as the UK and US governments, but nowhere seems to be as popular right now as France.
