The flower depicted on the coat of arms is referred to as a Fleur-de-lis. The word comes from the Middle English word "flour de lice" derived from the Old French "flor de lis" meaning a flower of lily. The symbol depicted consists of a three petal flower which is very symbolic and hardly true to life. The flower is supposed to symbolize light, perfection and life. It is representative of French royalty.

The origins of the fleur-de-lis as a symbol are stepped in the legends of both religion and French royal history. They all stem from the conversion of the first French King, Clovis to Christianity. Weather he put a flower in his helmet and won a battle or weather he got it as a gift from a saint are open to speculation.
