Fleur-de-lis


There are so many symbols that surrounds us- no wonder we overlook some of them or never notice them... 

The English translation of "fleur-de-lis" is "flower of the lily." This symbol, depicting a stylized lily or lotus flower, has many meanings. Traditionally, it has been used to represent French royalty, and in that sense it is said to signify perfection, light, and life.

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 if Spain. It remains an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps. It is said the petals represent the medieval social classes: those who worked, those who fought, and those who prayed

In building and architecture, the fleur-de-lis is often placed on top of iron fence posts, as a pointed defense against intruders. Like the one I found in my picture...
