Transcript: Fleur-de-Lis By, M. Crepe It is a stylized lily or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be "at one and the same time, religious, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic", especially in French heraldry. While the fleur-de-lis has appeared on countless European coats of arms and flags over the centuries, it is particularly associated with the French monarchy in a historical context, and continues to appear in the arms of the King of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and members of the House of Bourbon. It is on the coat of arms of almost every french city, most notably Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux, In French, fleur de lis literally means "lily flower". Decorative ornaments that resemble the fleur-de-lis have appeared in artwork from the earliest human civilizations. The symbol is used in many local sport teams that have french heritage such as the former Montreal Expos Major League Baseball team, the Serie A team Fiorentina, the Major League Soccer team, the Montreal Impact, as well asthe sports teams of New Orleans, Louisiana in the NFL, and NBA. The symbol is also a focus of many literary works such as The Da Vinci Code, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Edmund Spensers "The Faerie Queene" The three petals of the heraldic design reflect a widespread association with the Holy Trinity, a tradition going back to 14th century France, added onto the belief that they also represented faith, wisdom and chivalry.

Transcript: Fleur de Lis Bethany Forbus Significance My maiden name is Robidart, which is obviously French. My great great grandfather became a US citizen while he lived in France by becoming an American soldier during WWI.

Exploration The French started exploring the world just like so many other Europeans. In the 1500s, King Francis I sent French explorers out to find new routes to Asia and to find gold and riches. This quest was led by Jacques Cartier. Cartier found a river from the Pacific Ocean that led into the interior of North America. This river became known as the Lawrence River and this land is now what is known as Quebec, Canada. These settlers, of course, carried their nations flag with them on the journey and staked it high to claim the territory for the French. (Wikipedia, n.d.) Wikipedia Image: St. Lawrence River Rene-Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle La Salle was born in Normandy, France. He was sent to the Americas by King Louis XVI. In America, La Salle became a fur trader to make money. He sailed down the Illinois River and the Mississippi River claiming territory for France. Because of La Salle, the French were able to acquire land in North America that is now Louisiana. Once that land was claimed, he placed a French flag on it with the iconic Fleur de Lis.

They also brought with them their many symbols and customs, including the Fleur de Lis.
