Fleur-de-law

The Fleur-de-lis is now by law the official symbol of Louisiana. Signed into law Tuesday by Governor Bobby Jindal, the famous symbol now represents the state and can be used on official stationary. Does that make it the Fleur-de-LAW?

They are sure to sell a lot more Fleur-de -is symbols like this one in the French Market in New Orleans' French Quarter.

That is a beautiful window. I personally like the fleur-de-lis, so I think it's a good thing it has an "official" status now.

I'm surprised that the fleur de lys has only just become the state symbol. It's one of those things that should have be done a long time ago.

Beautiful window.

Hi Steve! This month promises to be even more hectic than the already chaotic previous ones! Anyhow, a blogging break is absolutely needed to balance the atmosphere. So here I am enjoying your blog!
The fleur de Lys is wonderful and the pictures of the egret and the heron flights are absolutely stunning!! Not to mention my favourite fireworks... ;)
Meanwhile Blogtrotter has now posted my 401st post (on Ann Arbor, Michigan)! Hope you enjoy and have a great weekend!

Clever play on words Steve. It might as well be official since its used all the time anyway.
Beautiful window with all the sparkle and reflection.

Very pretty stained glass window.

Enjoying the Egrets photos too, especially when the momma was feeding her chicks.
