Clichy is a commune in the northwestern suburbs of Paris, France. It is located on the Seine, 6.4 km (4.0 mi) from the centre of Paris.

In the 13th century, the plain of Clichy was used as a garenne (“warren” in English), i.e. a hunting park and game preserve for the exclusive use of the king or a lord. Clichy became known as Clichy-la-Garenne (“Clichy the Warren” or preserve). After the Revolution, the French administration officially recorded the name of the commune only as Clichy, dropping the “la-Garenne”. This is the term in use in the 21st century. But, in many instances the municipality of Clichy refers to the commune traditionally as Clichy-la-Garenne, although this has not been the official name for more than 200 years.

Located in Clichy are the headquarters of the L’Oréal Group, the world’s largest company in cosmetics and beauty, Bic, one of the biggest pen producers in the world, as well as Sony France, a large electronics and media company.
