In the Celtic world, the rooster is an emblem of fertility associated with a number of deities. The French “Gallic” rooster is an age-old symbol of Gaul, which is modern-day France. The Romans associated Gaul with roosters because the Latin name for this bird is “Gallus.”

So, roosters are often associated with the might of the Gallic warrior and with the national pride of France. Many ancient Celtic deities are associated with fertility and virility. The sexual aggression of the cock is connected with some of these.
