Fleur de Lys

IMG_5672

National flower of France. Deepest heavenly blue.

The sword symbolic for Liberty, carried by Marianne, heroine of the Republic, is represented by the 3 tiered petals of the elegant flowerhead and sleek stem form.

Faith, Valour, Wisdom

Each petal represents the qualities to maintain Liberty


In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Victory.”
