About the Fleur-de-lis symbol
The fleur-de-lis has a long association with France, and certain other European nations and cities, notably Florence, Italy. Cities in the US with a strong French culture like New Orleans have also adopted it as a symbol.
The fleur-de-lis, also spelled fleur-de-lys (plural fleurs-de-lis or fleurs-de-lys), is a Lily (in French, fleur and lis mean 'flower' and 'lily' respectively) that is used as a decorative design or symbol.
The fleur-de-lis has been used in the heraldry of numerous European nations, but is particularly associated with France, notably during its monarchical period. (it is thought to have originally represented a stylized Florentine iris). The fleur-de-lis became "at one and the same time, religious, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic," especially in French heraldry. The fleur-de-lis has been used by French royalty and throughout history to represent the religious saints of France. In particular, the Virgin Mary and Saint Joseph are often depicted with a lily.
