Centre-Val de Loire
This French administrative region officially changed its name to “Centre-Val de Loire” on 1 January 2015 (before, it was simply named “Centre”), one year before other new administrative regions take their new borders in 2016 by the same law (and adopt before July 2015 their future official name).
In an initial reform project, a new region “Val de Loire” should have been created with the current region “Pays de la Loire” in 2016 too, but the project did not pass in automn 2014, and the region (whose borders have still not changed) decided to keep the concept by renaming itself just before the publication of the January 2015 decret applying the 2014 law.
The region groups six departments : Cher (18), Eure-et-Loir (28), Indre (36), Indre-et-Loire (37), Loir-et-Cher (41) and Loiret (45).
28 - Eure-et-Loir
37 - Indre-et-Loire
41 - Loir-et-Cher
