What island changes hands between France and Spain every six months?

Answer:

Pheasant Island

Pheasant Island island lies in the Bidasoa River between France and Spain, and it has maintained an unusual status since the 17th century. When France and Spain needed a neutral site to sign their Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, they chose Pheasant Island, and amended the treaty so that the island changes hands every six months — remaining a site of common ground and symbolizing peace and equality.
