French Helmet High vis

I keep finding references to the fact that it has been law in france for some time to have reflective stickers on your helmet but I can find no information as to position, size or colour. Can anybody give me a definitive answer as I am leading a club ride to France in June

May not be definitive..

..but if anyone bought a dark coloured Shark helmet that should have the relevant retro-reflective stickers included in the box.  Maybe someone could post a scan?  Not huge, about 4x6cm each equivalent, but in various shapes, one on chin bar, one to each side, and one at the rear - all are mounted near the bottom of the shell.

Sadly I fitted mine to my old matt black lid (hoping to be picked out a little easier if I ever end up laying in the road at night), but I could maybe post some piccies if that helps?

For others looking, I found these which cover the French requirements and they have many colours and shapes
