Origin/meaning

The arms were officially granted on July 25, 1929.

The arms of Florence show a fleur-de-lis, or Florentine lily. Until 1251 the coat of arm of Florence was a white lily on a red field. But that year the Guelph party drove the Ghibellins out of the city and they inverted the colours of the coat of arm: red lily on a white shield. The lily refers to the flower of iris that grew naturally on the city walls and on the hills around Florence.
