We see the Fleur de Lis in so many places. Few people realize that the symbol dates back to ancient Egypt, although I don't know what it might have been called back then. What we do know is that it has always represented power, enlightenment, and good luck. In many ways, it has also always been steeped in mystery.
As the story goes, Louis X or Louis XI was about to lose France in a battle. The invading army was larger, had more weapons, and were better fed than the starving French army. Louis put the ancient symbol on his shield for the power and good luck that it promised. Much to everyone's shock, Luis won the battle and saved France.
Louis declared the symbol from then forward to represent France. For a long time no one other than French nobility was permitted to use it at all. Okay, personally, I find that last bit a bit rude, but this might also give us a hint about why the symbol seems especially elegant.
