Historians don’t exactly know some of the exact meaning or origins of a deck of cards.  The Club symbol as well as all the other symbols are derived from the original French suits that were used centuries ago.

The original French name for Clubs was Trèfle and means clover.  This is probably why it looks very much like a 3 leaf clover.
