The Story of the Golden Lilies of France


Thanks to Elena-Maria I have the honour to place this article on my blog, and redirect the reader to Weaver of Garlands.

...The entry of the fleur de lis on the arms of France is miraculous. Legend says that the lily was the emblem of the Virgin who sent her flower by an angel to Clovis, the Frankish king, at his conversion in 493. The golden lilies on an azure ground came to symbolise the all the Christian Frankish Kings, most famously Charlemagne... from Madame Royale.

Thanks and a tip of the beret to Elena-Maria and Jackie.

Dieu Le Roy!
