Traditionally used to represent French royalty in perfection, life and light. Legend has it that after converting to Christianity, Clovis, the Merovingian king of the Franks was visited by an angel and presented with a golden lily as a symbol of his purification. Other's claim that waterlilies showed Clovis how to safely cross a river to succeed in battle and from that he adopted the symbol. Since then, English kings used the symbol on coats of arms to emphasize their claims to the throne of France.
