** The arms of another Italian city, Trieste, subvert the trope. What looks very much like a silver fleur-de-lis on red is actually a pike-head.

* 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 fleur-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 fleur-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 fleur-de-lis.
** The French Republics got rid of the fleur-de-lis, as did UsefulNote/NapoleonBonaparte, who changed the French arms to a golden, Roman-style eagle, and used gold bees as his new dynastic symbol. The latter stemmed from an archeological discovery: when a Merovingian royal tomb was opened, decorations that were identified as bees were discovered in it.

The latter stemmed from an archeological discovery: when a Merovingian royal tomb was opened, decorations that were identified as bees were discovered in it. In 1814 and 1815, as Napoleon and Louis XVIII kept moving in and out, the staff of the royal palaces became very adept at transforming the omnipresent golden bees into fleurs-de-lis and and vice versa.



** 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 city of Lille's coat of arms shows a silver fleur-de-lis on red; this however is a case of "speaking arms" (a pun on Latin ''lilium'' "lily", which sounds a bit like "Lille") and dates back to before the city becoming French.

* Although the French Republic has never officially adopted this symbol, at least not since the monarchy ended, it's still used in Spain and Luxembourg due to their royalty being part of the Bourbon line.
** It's a bit telling that, as emperor, Napoleon swapped that for gold eagles on a vermilion background.
*** And gold bees as his new dynastic symbol.
*** The bees thing stemmed from an archeological discovery: a very old French king's grave, with golden bees buried in it.
