Fleur Di Lis...

Here in Louisville, there are Fleur de Lis everywhere! 

I see them on police cars in the seal on the door.

They are on the street signs.
(Photo Cred:

They are the name of several businesses, including this condominium unit.

The seal of L'ville has it on it.

Why, you ask. Because they are the symbol of the aid given by the French army during the Revolutionary War. It means "lily flower" and was the symbol of   King Louis XVI of France, the namesake for Louisville.
