Saint-Malo ,Breton: Sant-Maloù) is a walled port city in Brittany in northwestern France on the English Channel. Saint-Malo had a tradition of asserting its autonomy in dealings with the French authorities and even with the local Breton authorities. From 1490–1493, Saint-Malo declared itself to be an independent republic, taking the motto “not French, not Breton, but Malouins”.
