   Legend and mythology (not the Bible) states that the lily is said to have been borne of Eve's tears when she left Eden. When King Clovis converted to Christianity from Paganism, this flower symbolized his purification. As such, the legendary symbol is frequently depicted in fleur de lis crosses and jewelry.

   This design can be found in many places long before heraldic times, as far back as Mesopotamia. It is essentially a stylized golden iris flower and has been associated with the French kings from about 1200 AD. 
   The Fleur de Lis has strong religious connotations, especially with the Virgin Mary, and after the 14th century, with the Holy Trinity.
