Tomi Ungerer ›Commandeur de la Legion d'Honneur‹

In December 2017, Tomi Ungerer was promoted to the rank of commander in the French Legion of Honour (›Commandeur de la Légion d’Honneur‹) by President Emmanuel Macron. In 2001, he had already been dubbed officer by Minister for the Arts and Culture Jack Lang, and in 1990 knight of the Legion of Honour by President François Mitterrand.

The Legion of Honour is the highest French order of merit, dating back to Napoleon, who established it in 1802.
