FYI I don't mind a fleur-de-lys as it is thought of as Quebecian here, although in a strict France-to-France historical point of view the fleur-de-lys is associated monarchy, and since we have had a revolution and all that, and that in some regions of France it is still a bit touchy 200 years afterwards, I'd go with the language descriptor rather, as was suggested earlier.
