"C’est une illustration posée sur le boulevard qui jonche la plage Sud de Grau du Roi. La rose des vents version Grau du Roi est occitane, sont écrits en langue d’oc les noms des différents types de vents qui existent. Il est amusant de rendre compte des consonances avec leur traduction française en découvrant les « Tramountane », « Bisa » .
Cette mosaïque trop lisse s’inscrit dans les œuvres que l’on prend coutume de voir dans ces patelins modernes : Elle renvoie à la culture marine de cette ville portuaire, avec son ancre au centre de la rose rouge."

"It is an illustration placed on the boulevard which streams the south beach of Grau of the King." The rose of the winds Grau version of the King is Occitan, are written in the language of oc the names of the different types of winds that exist. Amusing to account for consonances with their French translation by discovering the "Tramountane", "Bisa".
This mosaic, too smooth, is part of the works that are commonly seen in these modern townships: It refers to the marine culture of this port city, with its anchor in the center of the red rose."
