No 1 (april 1907) - No 12 (april 1908)

Bilingual literary magazine named after the eighth month of the French Republican calendar and founded by Marcel Noppeney (1877-1966), Frantz Clément (1882-1942) and Eugène Forman (1878-1955) in 1907. The founders of Floréal believe that Luxembourg culture is characterised by an amalgam of Romanic and Germanic influences. As a result, half of the texts are in German and half in French.

According to the Dictionnaire des auteurs luxembourgeois, Marcel Noppeney contributed poems, commentaries and columns in French, Frantz Clément wrote essays on literary criticism, reviews and poems, while Eugène Forman published the satirical Puckis Erdenfahrt, an epic set in the fictitious state of Lampeduse (Luxembourg), in serial form.
