The fleur-de-lis is the official state symbol of Louisiana. It is a stylized iris that has appeared on many European coats of arms and flags in history, particularly in the French royal families. Scalise represents Louisiana’s 1st congressional district.

The latest update from Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., is that Scalise is “doing a lot better” but will require more surgeries to make a recovery.
