Abstract. We extend Michel's theorem on the geometry of symmetry breaking [1] to the case of pure gauge theories, i.e. of gauge-invariant functionals defined on the space $\A$ of connections of a principal fiber bundle. Our proof follows closely the original one by Michel, using several known results on the geometry of $\A$
