** The Quebec Nordiques hockey club, founding member of the World Hockey Association, added a fleur-de-lis to [[http://whauniforms.com/1974-75/Nordiques.html each shoulder of its jerseys in 1974,]] and redesigned their jerseys to be primarily blue and white the following season, [[http://whauniforms.com/1975-76/Nordiques.html adding fleur-de-lis along the waistline]] for a total of eight. They would keep that look throughout [[http://nhluniforms.com/1994-95/Nordiques.html their time in the NHL]]. Their [[WhatCouldHaveBeen planned 1995 redesign]] only kept the shoulder emblems, but those jerseys would never hit the ice due to the swift sale and relocation of the team to Colorado that offseason.

** Notably, this was taken from the Medieval [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_of_Bosnia Kings of Bosnia]], who even used the same colors as France. Oddly, the adoption of the fleur-de-lis by both monarchies was completely independent.

** Once French kings had decided on golden fleurs-de-lis on blue as their arms, these were also [[RetCon retroactively applied]] to the older monarchs by heralds. One interesting case of this is the arms thus given to Charlemagne, from whom both the French and German monarchs derived their succession: A shield bisected vertically, one half showing the French lilies on blue, the other half of the black eagle of the Kingdom of Germany and the HolyRomanEmpire. These arms are still currently used as arms of the bishop of Aachen in Germany, in whose cathedral Charlemagne is buried.

* The French fleur-de-lis first was used as a royal symbol in the 10th century and since [[UsefulNotes/LetatCestMoi Louis VIII]] (died 1226) the blue shield covered in fleurs-de-lis (''Azure semé-de-lis Or'') became the French royal arms. In 1340 King Edward III of England quartered the English arms with those of France to illustrate his claim to the French throne, and thus the fleur-de-lis became part of the English and later British arms until the claim was finally renounced by King George III in 1802. Interestingly, when King Charles V of France altered the royal arms to just three fleurs-de-lis on blue in 1376 (allegedly to honour the Holy Trinity), the claimants across the Channel followed suit. As branches of the French royal house got onto thrones of other countries, the French arms also sometimes ware added to the arms of these states. This is currently the case with Spain, where the king is a Bourbon descended from King Louis XIV of France. As the traditional colour of the House of Bourbon is white, the French naval ensign during the ancien régime was white covered with golden fleurs-de-lis.
