Fleur-de-lis translates in english to "flower of the lily" and depicts a stylized lily or lotus flower which has many meanings throughout history. The fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries and is particularly associated with the French monarchy. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and is said to signify perfection, light, and life. Legend has it that an angel presented Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks, with a golden lily as a symbol of his purification.
