New Orleans Symbol of Birth and Renewal

We are back from our trip to New Orleans. I hope to give some details soon of the trip and the condition of N.O. Something I didn't know and found interesting is the popularity and use of Fleur De Lis symbol in N.O. I hope you can read the words here, if you can't, please let me know. The Fleur de lis is seen everywhere in N.O., on lots of jewelry, clothing, especially t-shirts, made into candlesticks, ornaments, etc. There are several meanings of the Fleur de lis, but I like the most recent one. It has become the symbol of rebirth and renewal in Louisiana since the devastation of Hurricane Katrina on 8-29-05.
