~Ace of Spades~
Perhaps the most iconic of all the playing suits, the history of the modern spade symbol came from somewhere around the 14th century. The French simplified their suited playing card to the spade symbol that we recognize today based off of the original Latin suit of the sword- the spade is a portrayal of the head of the spike. The sword, and therefore, the spade, were representational of nobility and military. In fact, in 17th century Britain, King James I ordered all packs of suited playing cards to display the insignia of a member of a noble house on each spade card.
