French artisanal making.
According to the history books, these coats of arms were assigned to the Capetienne dynasty in medieval France.
This crest is composed of three intertwined lily leaves. The expression ‘Fleur de lis’ appeared under the reign of Louis VII and the gilded floral motif against a midnight blue ground was adopted as the crest of France and the symbol of the Kings of France.
At that time, the Blessed Virgin was perceived as the protector of kings and genuine link between men and the divine. This highly distinguished heraldic crest only features of the arms of members of the nobility who had been granted land from the king.
The fleur de lys is one of the oldest symbols in the world.
Say it with flowers...
For the Greeks, the lily was the ‘flower of flowers’, associated with the goddess Hera, the symbol of women and marriage.
The Romans, great connoisseurs of perfume, also considered the lily a divine flower. It is even held in greater revere than the rose.
The fleur de lys held a sacred significance for the Egyptians and Assyrians.
