Daniel Pontius

From the
iris the fleur-de-lis motif is said to have developed. In A Dictionary of Symbols J. E. Cirlot says the fleur-de-lis:
As an emblem, its base is an inverted triangle representing water; above it is a cross (expressing ‘Conjunction’ and spiritual achievement) with two additional and symmetrical leaves wrapped round the horizontal arm; the central arm is straight and reaches up heavenwards, the symbolism being self-evident (108).
The fleur-di-lis is of course seen on heraldic crests unlike the Pontius crest that is graced with the boar from which the bibelots banner is my interpretation.
