Harry Potter Flags from the Triwizard Tournement - The Beauxbatons Academy of Magic from France

The French Team is an all girls school

In 2005 the Harry Potter franchise saw the release of the its fourth film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. In it there is an exchange program between schools for the Triwizard Tournament. Two other schools of magic come to Hogwarts to compete - one from France and the other from Bulgaria. Coincidentally a stylized letter 'B' on a quartered shield of arms are represent the French Academy of Magic.

Someday J.K. Rowling will release the rights and allow writers, hopefully French to expand and write about the Adventures at Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. French Harry Potter heads would probably consume Beauxbaton Adventures like popcorn-crack.

Beauxbaton allows no boys! It's an all girls school and some women would prefer to learn all about magic without men to influence or distract them from their magical talents.

A small pennant for Allez

Cheers form the French "Allez," which basically means "come on" in English or "ganbate" in Japanese. Five pointed stars are important symbols for Beauxbatons Academy of Magic.

  1. In harry potter and the goblet of fire, Beauxbatons is NOT an all girl's school and if she hasn't I'm surprised that J.K. Rowling hasn't had a say about that. Movies should try their best , but they shouldn't try to outshine the book because it WON'T happen!
