The Fleur-de-Lis (bourbonian lily, Templar, Kings or Armour Lily), a stylized lily or lotus blossom, counts as a sign for perfection, light and life and is traditionally the symbol of the french king. According to legend Chlodwig, the merovingian king of the Franks, converted to christianity in 496 AD after which an angel gave him a golden lily as a symbol of his catharsis.
In the 12th century the Fleur de Lis became symbol of french royalty. The three-leaved lily can symbolize trinity, the Virgin Mary, creation, royalty and even the unity of body, mind and soul. The resemblance to a spear head builds the bridge to male martial power.
