The Cocarde ("Cockade") was a 40-gun Cocarde class frigate of the French Navy.

Ordered as Cocarde nationale, she was launched on 29 April 1794 in Saint Malo and commissioned in July under Lieutenant Allanic. Under Captain Quérangal, she took part in the Battle of Groix. She later took part in the Expédition d'Irlande. She was renamed Cocarde in June 1796.

In 1802, she served in the Caribean. A series of beachings damaged her direction and hull to the point where she had to be abandoned and dismantled.
