from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kings of the cross

Clubs ♣ or clubs are a color of the French playing cards . In the German paper it corresponds to the color acorn Bay acorn.svg . The original French name is Trèfle (German: Klee ), the card symbol represents a three- leaf clover . The Italian name is Fiori (flowers). In English , cross is referred to as clubs (bars, clubs) based on the color Bastoni of the Italian-Spanish image.

In Germany , this playing card color, in particular also by the International Skat Code , is called a cross , in Austria, however, it is almost exclusively based on the French name as a club , as is the case with bridge , where the French names generally prevail, as well as Cœur instead of heart .

In Skat and Doppelkopf , clubs are the highest-ranking suit (diamonds / bells are trumps in Doppelkopf), while clubs are the lowest in bridge.
