    Les symboles de la #Lorraine. Vase en émail (de Longwy ) avec 2 symboles de la Lorraine : le blason et le chardon. Concernant le blason, la légende raconte que les trois alérions qui composent le blason des ducs de Lorraine seraient dus à la formidable adresse de Godefroy de Bouillon qui, à la prise de Jérusalem, aurait réussi le tour de force d'embrocher en vol ces trois oiseaux d'une seule flèche. Quand au chardon c'est la devise régionale "qui s'y frotte s'y pique". © Laurent Jung
