Description The fleur-de-lis is a stylized lily or iris that is used as a decorative design or symbol. It may be 'at one and the same time, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic', especially in heraldry. 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 of Spain and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg, members of the House of Bourbon. It remains an enduring symbol of France that appears on French postage stamps, although it has never been adopted officially by any of the French republics. In North America, the fleur-de-lis is often associated with areas formerly settled by France, such as Quebec, St. Louis, Louisville, and Louisiana, and with French-speaking people in other Canadian provinces.It is also the emblem of the city of Florence, and of the Swiss municipality of Schlieren..............
