Few symbols have as storied a history as the fleur de lis. First used in Mesopotamia and Egypt, the fleur de lis symbol is more widely known as a representation of French royalty. During the 14th century, the three petals of the fleur de lis symbol came to stand for the virtues of wisdom, faith and chivalry. They became a popular choice for a coat of arms symbol for French military and royal families alike.
In art, the fleur de lis has represented a number of things, most prominently virtue and spirituality. With such a varied history that weaves through vastly different cultures, it’s no wonder that so many people throughout the centuries have identified with the elegant symbol. Even today the fleur de lis appears prevalently in design, fashion, art and architecture.
