"According to Rosemary Davison with Historic Florissant, Inc., the winning design for that city's first and only city flag was approved in 1971. At the top of the flag is the city seal. "Florissant should have been spelled "Fleurissant," she said. The date of 1786 represents the date of the first civil government, and the lion, fleur-de-lis and eagle represent the three flags that have flown over Florissant - Spanish, French and American. A "v" represents the Valley of Flowers. Nine fleur-de-lis represent the city's nine wards. "The white represents a clean, healthy city and the green represents the gift of rich, fertile land," Davison said."
