In Italy, the surname's roots can be traced back to Naples around the early 14th century where records show a Flores family receiving land grants in the feudal territories of Persano and Sandionisio.
Spelling variations of this surname also include Florez, Flórez, Floriz, Flóriz, Floraz, Flóraz, Flor, Florán, Floran, Flores and Florián among others.
Variations can also be found in several Florez coat-of-arms designs. The one similar feature many of these designs have in common is the fleur-de-lis, usually on a blue field, though varying in number from three to five, and possibly used in conjunction with other symbols.
