Contrary to popular belief, the fleur-de-lis did not originate in France. It was inherited from the Ancient Egyptian symbol for circumcision, later adopted by the ruling class of the Roman Empire, probably due to religious influences.
The flower itself is not so scary, but this part might make you think a little if you are a Saints\' opponent!. :cool:

Yeah knew what the logo ment... on my family crest sits 5 of them.

The one interesting note however is the relations of the Egyption circumcision... which I seem to suffer every Sunday during football season.

I actually love it... and we are the only professional sports team with a flower as its logo.

I also thing that a star logo is gay.

Its not that bad... I mean we could be the Dolphins... please.

Dolphins are better than the Browns. Ravens subsist on decaying roadkill. Nothing cool about that.


I think the name Saints implies that we\'ll benevolently hand out wins to teams in need, and career games to the chosen ones.

We need a name like the Vipers. I want us to strike early & often, while our opponent flops about in agony. Yeah
:mad:
