It’s a Fleur de Lis Mosaic Spree February 10 2022 Blue Water Pool Mosaics What do France, the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, King Louis IX, King Edward III of England, and King Charles IV have in common? Fleur de lis – the symbol of the ages! The fleur de lis may very well be the perfect embellishment for your pool, and Blue Water Pool Mosaics has just the design you’re looking for to welcome your neighbors with flair. So What Is a Fleur de Lis? A lily debuted as a decorative icon during France’s monarchical era. The fleur de lis, according to M. Webster, is “a conventionalized iris in artistic design and heraldry.” It represents the French royal family and symbolizes perfection, light, and life. In legend, at the time of Clovis’ conversion to Christianity, an angel gave him a golden lily (or iris) to symbolize his purification. Some claim Clovis adopted the symbol when the waterlilies taught him to cross a river safely and achieve victory in battle. Where Might You See a Fleur de Lis? Everywhere! You only need to look around. The fleur de lis is an iconic, ever-present symbol in contemporary culture. The design appears on fence posts, wall plaques, watercolor paintings, dishes, the north point of a compass, fabric patterns, and countless jewelry designs’ details. Even flags have the fleur de lis in their flag or seal, such as Baton Rouge, Detroit, Lafayette, Louisville, New Orleans, and St. Louis. A fleur de lis would be more than a pretty floral decoration to someone studying semiotics (the study of signs and symbols and their interpretation); it would symbolize life, enlightenment, and excellence. Including mosaics, the symbol represents a wide range of things, such as the Virgin Mary, the Holy Trinity, and the divine right of royalty. With so many artistic interpretations, it’s safe to say the fleur de lis is here to stay.
