This symbol is still one of the most popular and coveted symbols of this century
Fleur de lis in French ~ simply means the Lilly Flower

For you History Buffs♥
This symbol appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries
It is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context
It remains an enduring symbol of France.
What Makes this Decorative Symbol so popular?
Maybe just a beautiful decorative Flower Emblem
or what it represented originally-
The three leaves originally represented the medieval social classes:
those who worked, those who fought and those who prayed.
As a religious symbol the three petals represent Faith. Wisdom. Chivalry
and associated with the Trinity and the Virgin Mary.

In America, the Fleur-de-lis was associated with areas first named or settled by the French.
Which were the areas along or near the Mississippi and Missouri rivers.
Cities still claiming the Symbol of the Fleur-de-lis in their flag or seal :
St. Louis, Louisville, Detroit, New Orleans, and Baton Rouge
and the states of Missouri and Louisiana.

An Architectural Favorite ~
Alone or as repeated motif in a wide range of contexts
from the Ironwork of Buildings to Fences and Statues and Flags
In building and architecture, the fleur-de-lis is often placed on top of iron fence posts,
with the bottom up..A symbol of pointed defence against intruders!
when Lilly is placed at top - sign of Welcome!

Interesting history that makes this symbol one of our favorites

Piece is 10 x 8 weighing around 10lbs
