The chevron symbol flies on flags, decorates military uniforms, and frequently appears in haute couture gown designs. But where did it come from? Originally, the chevron was simply the Greek letter lambda which was used as the central design element on the shields from the famous warriors of Sparta. More recently, the symbol served to announce the "forward movement" of a line of genetically connected family members, a symbol of heraldry, of knights and ladies of the court. Today, we admire it for its simple lines that communicate forward movement and advancement, a cause for celebration the bride is certain to enjoy.
