Symbol meaning

The ♤ White spade symbol represents the spade suit, one of the four categories in decks of cards.

The spade belongs to the French system of suits, and, according to one version, it bears the name of the polearm of the same name of the 14th-17th centuries. The figure depicted on the cards personifies the metal tip of the lance, which is directed upwards.

According to an alternative version, the term spade was coined as an analog of the suit of Swords from the Latin system, which preceded the French one. In this case, the spade symbol printed on the playing cards follows the shape of the hilt and point of the sword.

Both versions support the theory that the card suits reflected the social groups of the society of that time, where the spade corresponded to the class of military nobles.

The prototypes and analogs of spades from the French deck are the suits of wine, leaves, a shovel, mountains, a crow, and a cane.
