The fleur-de-lis symbol actually represents a heraldic iris. This is easily seen by the symbol’s shape, drooping sepals (called falls) and upright petals (standards), nothing like the trumpet shape of lilies known in Europe at the time. There are many theories as to why the symbol become known as a fleur-de-lis rather than a fleur-d’iris, One is that Louis VII, King of the Franks from 1137 to 1180, used the symbol prominently on his flag, clothing, and shield, leading to it being called the “flor de Lois” (as it was pronounced at the time), a term which later evolved into fleur-de-lis.
