The fleur-de-lis/fleur-de-lys (plural: fleurs-de-lis/fleurs-de-lys ) [pron 1] or flower-de-luce is a stylized lily (in French, fleur means "flower", and lis means "lily") that is used as a decorative design or symbol . Many of the saints are often depicted with a lily, most prominently St. Joseph . Since France is a historically Catholic nation, the fleur-de-lis became "at one and the same time, religious, political, dynastic, artistic, emblematic, and symbolic", especially in French heraldry . [4]

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 (from the French House of Bourbon) and the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and 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 . According to French historian Georges Duby , the three petals represent the medieval social classes : those who worked , those who fought , and those who prayed . [5]

The heraldic fleur-de-lis is still widespread: among the numerous cities which use it as a symbol are some whose names echo the word 'lily', for example, Liljendal , Finland, and Lelystad , Netherlands. This is called canting arms in heraldic terminology. Other European examples of municipal coats-of-arms bearing the fleur-de-lis include Lincoln in England, Morcín in Spain, Wiesbaden in Germany, Skierniewice in Poland and Jurbarkas in Lithuania. The Swiss municipality of Schlieren and the Estonian municipality of Jõelähtme also have a fleur-de-lis on their coats.

We rented out the entire mansion for an extended weekend. The place has so much character and really embodies the French culture in NOLA. We practically lived in the hot tubs and the kitchen was amazing. Home away from home and I’ll definitely be back.

Thank you so much for a fantastic stay at The Mansion!  We rented out the entire mansion for our wedding party, and all loved the house’s unique and lively atmosphere.  On the recommendation of the owners, we also booked a catered meal from Chef Bucks – it was FANTASTIC!  Our guests are still raving about his amazing jambalaya.  Being catered to by such a great chef in a gorgeous building like The Mansion made our time in New Orleans unforgettable for us and all of our guests.  Thanks again!
