It is also the symbol of life and the soul… nature’s pharmacist, the bee accompanied mankind since the dawn of time. born from the tears of the sun God Ra, it is depicted in the hieroglyphs of the car touches of the Pharaohs of Lower Egypt. it was the symbol of Artemis (Goddess of Fertility), as well as that of the promised land and the resurrection of Christ. enlivening the land and sky, it is the emblem of royalty, the royal banner of the Father of Clovis and later of Louis XII to associate himself with this oldest emblem of sovereignty, Napoleon Bonaparte had it pictured on his imperial coat, as of 1804, and then on the gold coat of arms of prestigious dignitaries.
