Pattern in French, ask me if you want it in English.

The grenade, or inflamed bomb is white for the departmental gendarmerie and yellow for the mobile gendarmerie, it represents an eight-branched deer antler.

Symbol of the elite units under the Ancien Régime, it was extended to all gendarmerie since 1797. The grenade had the advantage of clearly identifying the homogeneity of the institution despite the diversity of missions and specialties.

Over time, the shape of this grenade has evolved. It was represented with a plume with a variable number of flames and a bomb bigger or smaller. In its last form it was fixed by regulation to eight interlaced flames. It was thus clearly identifiable with the one of the foreign legion, the infantry, the fire brigade or even the customs administration.

Since 2015, the grenade has officially been replaced by a unique blue and stylized flame.

A clear and easy to follow measurements grid
The measurements page is aerated and lined to be pleasant to follow.
You can see an example HERE.

Manual and original design
I was the very first one to conceptualize Isaac Salazar’s art.
To create book folding patterns I developped my own computer tools. But to control its feasibility, the creation of the pattern is mainly manual.
