About Fleur de Lis Home Decor
A man's home is his castle — you have heard the expression, but bring the phrase to life by incorporating royal fleur-de-lis home decor into your own castle. The fleur-de-lis is French for flower of lily or lily flower. This regal symbol is a stylized lily consisting of three curvaceous petals, each said to represent a respected and honored segment of the French populace — the workers, the soldiers, and the religious clergy. Historically and popularly, the symbol is closely associated with the French monarchy. Legend has it that the design was inspired by a lily given to Clovis, king of the Franks, by the Virgin Mary. However, it is often found on many European crests, including the countries of Spain and Luxembourg, and various cities and provinces throughout Europe. The design also appears on the crown jewels of England and Scotland. Whether you are a Francophile, want to increase the lavishness of your own palace, or just enjoy the beautiful simplicity of the symbol, find the perfect accent within the large selection of fleur-de-lis home decor on eBay.
