    Hi, I just came this word "vigipirate" in this context "En France, le plan vigipirate est passé d'orange à rouge." Is it referring to a 'Terror Alert'..thanks

    The Vigipirate plan is the French anti-terrorist security alert plan. It was first implemented in 1978. Colours (orange, red) reflect the measures enforced according to the level of alleged danger for national security.
