Administrative division

France is divided into 27 administrative regions. Of these 22 are in metropolitan France, and five are overseas regions.
The regions are further subdivided into 101 departments. The 101 departments are subdivided into 341 arrondissements which are, in turn, subdivided into 4,051 cantons. These cantons are then divided into 36,697 communes, which are municipalities with an elected municipal council.

There also exist 2,588 intercommunal entities grouping 33,414 of the 36,697 communes (i.e. 91.1% of all the communes). Three communes, Paris, Lyon and Marseille are also subdivided into 45 municipal arrondissements.

None of the administrative regions, arrondissements and cantons use arms. All departments and many municipalities, however, do use arms.
