The fleur de lis (flower of the lily) is a heraldic symbol of French royalty. It is still used in flags and most often in jewelry. It has a prestigious history as a symbol of kings, worn by Crusaders into battle, and an emblem of the flag of St. Joan of Arc. Today it is the symbol of the city of New Orleans and is proudly embraced in the rebuilding efforts.

This fleur de lis has an enamel center over brass and is used separately as a pin or as a watch holder. It is 1 1/4" x 1" .
