This cross is in the shape of the Fleur-de-lis, a stylized iris and the French royal emblem. According to legend, in the early 500’s, Clovis I started using the fleur-de-lis after an angel gave him an iris for accepting Christianity. Flers is a small village in Normandy. The seaboard province of Normandy has a history of prosperous independence as one of the crucial powers of medieval Europe. Colonized by Scandinavian Vikings (or Norsemen) beginning in the ninth century, it in turn began to colonize during the eleventh and twelfth centuries, with military expeditions conquering not only England but as far away as Sicily and areas of the Near East.

Due to the hand casting and proprietary staining process, each of my plaques is unique. Each cross comes with a hanger embedded in the stone. The cross comes with a descriptive tag describing the original stone, explanation of the design or information on where the cross is located.
