Statesman Tie’s Louisiana Tie was designed to represent the flag of Louisiana. For this tie, we went back and forth on whether or not to use the pelican from the flag or the traditional, commonly used fleur-de-lis. (Think New Orleans Saints football helmet.) In the end, we liked the cleaner design of the fleur-de-lis, but we did use three thin stripes to symbolize the three pelican chicks on the Louisiana flag. The blue color of the tie was taken from the flag. The fleur-de-lis was placed in the corner of the tie to give it an unmistakable design element. We think we created a classy tie that can be worn at any time for any occasion.
Regarding the flag specifically: “The flag of Louisiana (French: Drapeau de la Louisiane) consists of a ‘pelican in her piety,’ the heraldic charge representing a mother pelican ‘in her nest feeding her young with her blood[,]’ on an azure field with state motto reworded to ‘Union Justice Confidence.’ First adopted in 1912, it was last modified in 2010.
The mother pelican’s head and outspread wings covering the three pelican chicks nestled below her form a stylized fleur-de-lis, another emblem of similar significance often depicted in Louisiana. This symbol, emblematic of Christian charity (and of Catholicism), is also found on the state seal. During the 19th century it was traditional in Louisiana flags and the state seal for the pelican in her piety to have three drops of blood on her chest.” (Source, here. )
