This signed work by Maurice Milleur is an original collection of unique Fleur De Lis designs. The earliest Fleur De Lis dates from 3000BC found on an Assyrian bas-relief. It later spread to Crete, India, and Egypt. The Greeks and Romans associated it with royalty by using it on their coins. Around 1200AD King Louis VII of France incorporated it into the royal French emblem. The St. Louis banner has 3 golden Fleur De Lis on a blue field. This particular design is in our collection of 7. A tropical design based on banana leaves is also included. The Fleur De Lis is a historical symbol of French influence along the central Gulf coast before the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.
