The flag of Languedoc - Roussillon was also changed. The new flag has no reference to the old provinces. The President of Languedoc - Roussillon also wanted to change the name of the region to remove the duality and bring about uniformity.

The Romans had created the name Septimania. This name was used in the early Middle Ages. This name would have helped in removed the difference between the Occitan and Catalan speaking areas of this region. But this name has not been in use since the 9th century.

The population of the region opposed the use of the name and so gradually the use of the name was gradually cut off.
