Pride in Bloom

The fleur-de-lis, historically an emblem of French royalty, has long been a symbol of New Orleans. Since Hurricane Katrina, however, locals have elevated the fleur-de-lis into a symbol of pride and recovery. You can find creative examples all over the city, worked into jewelry, artwork, candles, glassware, T-shirts, and even tattoos.
