Gules an Annulet flamully-fleury-counterbarbed Or.

The German blazon makes reference to Kleven.  Maybe the "Kleven" suggest that the "fleurs-de-lis" are not lilies but trefoils (i.e. clover-leaves). Together with the thorns on their opposite, they may well be trefoils slipped, and then made somewhat more look-alike fleurs-de-lis.

I wonder, maybe the fleurs-de-lis were originally trefoils? And maybe Kleven is a heraldical, dialectal or archaic form of "Klee[blatt]" i.e., clover or trefoil?
