Paris announces franchise name and logo
The Paris based French franchise will be named Paris Saints. Named after the religious name that identifies a person as holy, the Paris Saints or Lés Saints de Paris for the natives will compete in the Western Conference of the European League of Football. Combining the traditional roots with modern French football results in a great look.
The logo unites a holy cross with the Fleur-de-lis. Both appear to fit to the name of the Saints. In French history, the Fleur-de-lis, a lily flower, has been used by French royalty and throughout history to represent the saints of France, becoming historically important in religious, political, artistic and symbolic cases. Further, the logo is reminiscent of that of the Musketeers.
