Metropolitan France has a vaguely hexagonal shape as you can see in France map vector (In geometry, a hexagon (from Greek ἕξ hex, "six") is a polygon with six edges and six vertices). In French, l'Hexagone refers to the European mainland of France aka the "metropole" as opposed to the overseas territories such as Guadeloupe, Martinique or French Guiana.

Children in France learn to draw the map of their country through first constructing its vector as an hexagon. The map shows you how this is done. French people and the French media use the name of "L'Hexagone" a lot when they refer to their country. The diameter of the hexagon measures close to 1,000 km (620 mi) from each of its six corners to the opposite corner.

France is shaped like a hexagon, and three of its six sides are bounded by water as youcan see in France map vector— the English Channel on the northwest, the Atlantic Ocean and Bay of Biscay on the west, and the Mediterranean Sea on the southeast. The remaining sides are mostly mountainous and are shared by seven European neighbors — Belgium and Luxembourg on the northeast; Germany, Switzerland, and Italy on the east; and Spain and tiny Andorra on the south.
