The Latin word for Frenchmen, Gallus, was the same as the word for rooster, gallus. The French decided to adopt the fighting cock, one of the most vicious animals ever to have been domesticated (seriously, they are bastards), as their mascot. Thus, Brother France's rooster.

Of course, that leads to the obvious jokes...
