The Fleur-de-lis is a stylized flower founded mostly in French Heritage. Fleurs-de-lis crossed the Atlantic along with Europeans going to the New World, especially with French settlers. In the US, the fleur-de-lis symbols tend to be along or near the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. These are areas of strong French colonial empire settlement. Some of the places that have it in their flag or seal are the cities of St. Louis,Louisville, Detroit, Mobile, New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Lafayette. On 9 July 2008, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal signed a bill into law making the fleur-de-lis an official symbol of the state. Following Hurricane Katrina, the fleur-de-lis has been widely used in New Orleans as a symbol of grassroots support for New Orleans' recovery.It has also become the symbol for the identity of the Cajuns and Louisiana Creole people, and their French heritage.
