Revolucion is Spanish, French people write it Révolution.   By the way
there was a time I was tempted to use Goya's 'Tres de Mayo' as basis
for a logo but it was rejected as too dramatic: it depicts spanish
patriots shot by a Napoleonic fire squad.  I am half spanish.

Your draw is fun, but... Napoleon ended he Revolution, in fact he
created an Empire ie a hereditary monarchy with a nobility and it was
in everything but name the same than say the contemporay England but with
less freedom than what was enjoyed by the British.

Of course there was a General Bonaparte who republican flag in hand
was the first to cross the Arcole bridge.
