Long Description:
[FR] Arbre de la Liberté, planté à l'occasion du Bicentenaire de la Révolution française et situé à Cuon.
L’arbre de la liberté est un symbole de la liberté, depuis la période de la Révolution française. Il symbolise aussi en tant qu'arbre de la vie, la continuité, la croissance, la force et la puissance. Il est devenu au cours du xixe siècle un des symboles de la République française avec la Marianne ou la semeuse. Il figure depuis 1999 sur les pièces françaises d'un euro et de deux euros.
Plantés, en général dans l’endroit le plus fréquenté, le plus apparent d’une localité, comme signes de joie et symboles d’affranchissement, ces végétaux devaient grandir avec les institutions nouvelles.
