CH badge symbols

Anything that doesn't fit anywhere else, but that's still CH related.

CH badge symbols

I probably should know this, but....
On the badge I assume the cross and dagger are for the City of London, and the Rose is for the Tudors. What are the Fleur de Lys for?

Here is a quote from good old Wiki....

"Fleurs-de-lis feature prominently in the Crown Jewels of England and Scotland. In English heraldry, they are used in many different ways, and can be the cadency mark of the sixth son. Additionally, it features in a large amount of royal arms of the House of Plantagenet, from the 13th century onwards to the early Tudors (Elizabeth of York and the de la Pole family.)"

Possibly a reference to our founder King ??

Presumably a royal allusion. The kings of England claimed to be kings of France until the Peace of Amiens in 1802.

The French standard (pre revolution) was 3 fleurs de lys
