Signs of support for the people of France were on display this weekend at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point after Friday's deadly terrorist attacks in Paris.

French flags could be seen in the stands and on the field Saturday as the Black Knights faced Tulane. The academy's Flickr account shows a photo of a cadet holding the French national flag in the stands, while another shows a spirit tank that was adorned with the Tricolour on the sidelines.

But perhaps the act that grabbed the most attention was when Army defensive back Caleb McNeill carried a French flag onto the Michie Stadium field alongside a French exchange cadet before the game.

And speaking of French exchange cadets, a Reddit user posted a photo of French cadets holding an impromptu ceremony following news of the attacks.
