Flowers in the Coronation Emblem
We're all very familiar with the Coronation emblem, but here's a reminder of the significance of the design:
Using the red, white and blue of the union flag, the emblem pays tribute to the King's love of the natural world.
It unifies the flora of the four UK nations: the rose of England, the thistle of Scotland, the daffodil of Wales and the shamrock of Northern Ireland.
Together the flowers create the shape of St Edward's Crown, with which His Majesty The King was crowned at Westminster Abbey on 6th May.
