I am only looking for the departments of Metropolitan France, which I have now specified in the description.

I made one in french with a map for all the 101 departments, if you're interested : Départements Français (avec carte).

For the Metropolis of Lyon, the department isn't fixed for the moment and it is in the department Rhône.

I'm happy If I'll learn all departments between Paris and Belgium. Namely the ones in Haute de France and Grand Est

Glad you think so! The map is one of my favourites that I've made so far, altough it might be a little hard for most JetPunk users.

Well, I got exactly half of the average score, and I used to live in France. At least I got them all in Lorraine and Alsace, which was my area... otherwise I obviously need to mug up.

I will be nominating this when I get some nomination points back.

Thank you, and I hope you enjoyed your time in France. Alsace and Lorraine must be beautiful country. I get the feeling that this quiz has largely been taken by French nationals, although 1000 takes on this quiz or so ago a French-language version was created and featured.

Well, they have some very pretty towns and cities, although the landscape is fair to middling, I'd say. Metz is a real jewel, especially if you know a bit of its history.

I've finally nominated!

WHAT?! No map of France featured in English on JetPunk?! How is that possible?! I hate when people think I'm a yound crazy kid, but when it's about France... !

Of course nominated! We have to repare this... blasphem! This abomination!

More seriously, the map is excellent! Actually maybe better than on the French version...! Congratulations!

Thank you, I am happy to hear you liked it! I can see why it hasn't been featured yet since the French departments are very obscure outside of France. The map used to be basic--just the departments of Metropolitan France without any external border, overseas territories or regional borders at all. I had wanted to make a new map for a while, and the French version only inspired me to do so. Cheers :)

Hi Jiao! I would like to use this map too, for a French Departments visited by Asterix on a map quiz (with a similar design than the same quiz but for countries, which I have done several months ago).

Actually, habitually, I use the punkfrançais "default map", but for this quiz, this map would be better. Do you allow me to use it? Thank you for your answer!

I'm surprised so many people know all of them. I'm from Belgium and barely got to 60. I know I'm late but I really think it should be featured.

Thank you! I get the feeling that the Departments are more relevant to French people than the Regions are but I'm not certain about that.

as a French guy, yeah departments "matter" more in terms of appartnenance than regions since the new regions have been formed in 2016, regrouping 27 old ones in 13 new ones

by the way, i think the type-in "seine" working for "seine-saint-denis" isn't the best thing since the departments "seine et marne" and "seine maritime" also exist

great quiz also !

And 'Seine' is also the former name of the departement of Paris, which is another reason I'm not a fan of allowing it for Seine-Saint-Denis.

Great quiz Jiaozira (from a French quizzer)!

Btw, Lyon metropolis and Rhône département are the same unit so you can delete one of these two answers.

Very good quiz again!

As someone who was born in France and lived there for a number of years, 74 is embarrassingly low.

Lyon is not a departement.

And Seine should'nt be an answer for seine-st-denis.

Nice quiz but Lyon metropolis should really not be there.

And Seine for Seine-Saint-Denis is not accurate : Seine used to be the department 75 which is now Paris

+1, Seine-Saint-Denis really can't be reduced to "Seine" and Lyon isn't a department at all

I agree with Seine-Saint-Denis, but Lyon is well on its way to break up from the rest of the Rhône departement (though as a French myself I'm surprise we hardly hear about it).

Lyon is not a department. Thank you.

Good quiz.
