The author uses it as a symbol of the Breton resistance where it is adjacent to the town of Clisson in the Loire-Atlantique.Fougères is historically, since the arrival of Latin in Armorica, a Gallo word in which the territory is called Foujerr. Its Breton name is Felger. Entry signs to the agglomeration have carried this name for several years.
