  • History

    The fleur-de-lys has been used as a decorative symbol for centuries and has a rich history that dates back to ancient times. Its exact origin is unknown, but it has been used in various forms by different cultures. For example, the fleur-de-lys was used in ancient Egypt as a symbol of perfection and purity. In ancient Greece, it was used as a symbol of wealth and power. In ancient Rome, it was used as a symbol of authority and victory.

    It was during the Middle Ages that the fleur-de-lys became most closely associated with the French monarchy. The symbol was used extensively by the French kings, who believed that it represented their power and divine right to rule. The fleur-de-lys appeared on the coat of arms of many French monarchs, and it was also used on flags, currency, and other official emblems.

     

    Over time, the fleur-de-lys became more widely associated with France as a nation, rather than just the French monarchy. It was used on the French flag and was adopted as a symbol of French identity. The fleur-de-lys has also been used by other countries and organizations. For example, it is used on the coat of arms of Quebec, a province in Canada that has strong ties to France. It is also used as a logo by various sports teams, such as the New Orleans Saints of the NFL.

    In addition to its use as a symbol of royalty and national identity, the fleur-de-lys has also been associated with various religious and spiritual beliefs. In Christianity, the fleur-de-lys has been used to represent the Holy Trinity and the Virgin Mary. In the Tarot, it is associated with the element of fire and represents energy and creativity.

    Today, the fleur-de-lys continues to be a popular symbol that is used in various ways. It is often used in fashion and home decor, as well as by organizations and sports teams. The fleur-de-lys has a rich and complex history that reflects its importance and enduring appeal.
