This flag has long been flown by the French, as the Fleur-de-lis
bears ancient significance in French Heraldry. French
explorers carried it in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century,
as they lead expeditions across North America. The
three golden Fleur-de-lis on the blue field evolved from
the original “Lily Flower,” tripled by King Charles
V in honor of the Holy Trinity.
