From the beginning of 1950s French Army vehicles were painted in "Army Green", with exception of those stationed in desert regions, which used "Sahara Yellow" instead. This standard remained until early 1990s, when instruction MAT 2636 introduced an obligatory tri-colour camouflage of Dark Green, Earth Brown and Black.
