The Fleur de Lis and Mardi Gras Fun Facts
The symbol of Fleur de Lis has long ties to the celebration of Mardi Gras. In fact, legend has it that the symbol of Fleur de Lis became popular with Clovis, the King of the Franks. He was on his way to war and came across a field of Lilies on the banks of the Lys. In hopes of good luck and as a symbol of a future victory, he put one in his helmet. Eventually, he adapted this symbol as a sign of royalty and an attribute of sovereignty. Over time, the Fleur de Lis has adapted a strong religious meaning in that the power and the shape of the three petals is the shape of the Holy Trinity. For the Acadians and the Cajuns, who settled New Orleans, it has evolved to be a sign of dignity. In connecting Mardi Gras traditions, Louisiana has lovingly embraced this symbol.
