The fleur de lys of heraldry, with its three ” petals,” its cross-bar, or knop, or ring, and its triple ” stalk,” is probably of no greater antiquity than heraldry itself.  King Louis VII was the first to use a fleur de lys as a cognisance. It appears on his seal, of about the middle of the 12th century.  Thereafter golden fleurs de lys on a blue field became the Royal Arms of France, and the fleur de lys itself became identified with the French Royal House, and indeed with France itself.
