City of Florissant

Settled in the late 1700s (prior to the nation becoming independent), the village, called "Fleurissant," or "Blooming" in English, by its French settlers and "St. Ferdinand" by its Spanish rulers, was a typical French village of the time. Located just outside of Saint Louis, Florissant was ranked in the top 100 Best Places to Live by Money Magazine in 2012. As of the 2010 United States census, the population was just over 52,000, which made Florissant the 12th largest city in Missouri.

Welcome to the City of Florissant's web site! The City of Florissant lies in the heart of a valley near the confluence of two rivers, the Missouri and the Mississippi, and was aptly nicknamed the "Valley of Flowers," by French farmers and fur trappers in the 1760s. The community has existed under the flags of the French and the Spanish Monarchies, the French Republic, and the United States. The first official governance was a Spanish Garrison established in 1786. Our City Flag is very beautiful and symbolic. It contains the symbols of the United States, France and Spain and three colors; Gold for the value of elective government, White for a clean and healthy city and Green for the gift of fertile soil.

Florissant is the largest municipality in St. Louis County, having a population of 52,158 and 166.85 miles of public streets maintained by one of the best public works departments anywhere. Our Building Dept enforces our city codes to keep our property values up and our Health Dept helps us keep our city clean.
