About the fleur-de-lis

The fleur-de-lis (or fleur-de-lys; plural: fleurs-de-lis; French pronunciation) is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means flower, & lis means lily) or iris. Through long centuries of use on emblems & insignia of government, monarchies, society, art and culture, the fleur de lis has come to possess political, dynastic, artistic, emblematicand cultural significance. In French, fleur de lis literally means lily flower. The fleur de lis is commonly thought to be a stylized version of the species Iris pseudacorus. Artistic statues and ornaments resembling the fleur-de-lis have featured in artwork since the dawn of human civilization.

Historical Contexts of the fleur de lis

The fleur-de-lis is most particularly associated with French royalty. It the fleur-de-lis) remains an enduring symbol of France that features on French postage stamps, although the fleur-de-lis has never actually been adopted officially by any of the French republics. The fleur-de-lis also appears often in French literature. A few well-known examples in English translation include the fleur-de-lis character in The Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo, & the reference in Dumas' The Three Musketeers to the medieval custom of sear-branding criminals with the sign of the fleur de lis. Ironically, the fleur de lis brand also appears as the symbol of command on the fleur de lis baton, the baton conferred upon the French field marshal. It was a symbol of command held by the musketeer D'artagnan during his death on the battlefield for the United Provinces. The symbol has also featured in recent fiction on historical & mystical themes, such as in the bestselling novel The Da Vinci Code and other literature referring to the Priory of Sion.

In the post-cold war state of Bosnia & Herzegovina, the flag of Bosnia-Herzegovina from 1992 to 1998 contained six fleurs-de-lis & was used as a national symbol of Bosniaks. In the UK, the fleur-de-lis has remained in the official arms of the Norroy King of Arms for several centuries.

The fleurs-de-lis appears on military flags & the logos of many organizations, the most famous being that of the notorious Israeli Intelligence Corps, the World War I, the 256th Infantry Brigade Combat Team and the Louisiana State University Cadet Corps.

Throughout the 20th century, the symbol was adopted by numeous Scouting organizations throughout the world as part of their badges. Architects and designers frequently use it as well, as a repeated motif in a wide range of contexts, from ironwork to bookbinding, especially where a French context is implied. As a religious symbol, it may represent the Trinity, or be an iconographic attribute of the archangel Gabriel, notably in representations of the Annunciation. In such contexts, the fleur-de-lis is associated with the Virgin Mary.

Significance of the Fleur de lis Petals

During the time of King Louis IX (St. Louis) the three petals of the flower were said to symbolize faith, wisdom & chivalry, & to be a sign of divine blessing bestowed on France. During the next century, the 14th, the tradition of Trinity symbolism was established in France, & then spread throughout the French empire.

Symbolism in religion and art

During the Middle Ages, the symbols of lily and fleur-de-lis (lis is French for lily) overlapped considerably in religious art. Historian Michel Pastoureau states that until about 1300 they were found in paintings of Jesus, but gradually they took on Marian symbolism & were associated with the Song of Solomon's lily among thorns (lilium inter spinas), understood as a reference to the Virgin Mary. Other scripture & religious literature in which the lily symbolizes purity and chastity also helped establish the flower as an iconographic attribute of the Virgin. The three petals of the fleur de lis reflect a widespread association with the Holy Trinity, with the band on the bottom symbolizing Mary. The tradition says that without Mary you cannot understand the Trinity since it was she who bore The Son.
