The Fleur-de-Lis, Symbol of the Holy Trinity and Mary
Until about 1300, the fleur-de-Lis was originally depicted with Jesus, but later more and more with Mary, the “lily among thorns” of Song of Songs 2:2. Since the lily was seen as a symbol of purity and chastity, the fleur-de-lis was increasingly depicted as an attribute of the Virgin Mary in iconography. The three petals of the fleur-de-lis symbolize the three Persons of the Holy Trinity. The band which binds the three petals together is a symbol of Mary, since the Trinity is not understandable without Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, the second Person of the Trinity.
