The Fleur de Lis dates back to ancient Egypt. It has always been steeped in mystery, and has always represented power, enlightenment, and good luck.
As the story goes, either Louis X or Louis XI (no one is sure) was about to lose France in a battle. The other army was stronger in size and weapons. The French had far fewer soldiers, and those they had were starving and poorly armed. Louis put the already ancient symbol on his shield for power and luck. Contrary to all predictions, he won the battle and saved France.
Attributing the success to the good luck symbol, Louis declared the Fleur de Lis to be the symbol of France. There were even times it was illegal for anyone but French nobility to display the symbol - hm - more separation of classes - - but I digress - - -
Another mystery is the meaning of Fleur de Lis. Some say it means Flower of Louis. Some say it only means Lily Flower. Like everything else about the Fleur de Lis, it's a mystery, which I can't clear up- I was not there.
