Buckingham Palace has unveiled the official emblem for King Charles III’s coronation, which will be used in street parties, social media, and souvenirs.
According to the BBC, the logo was designed by Sir Jony Ive, who is recognized for his inventive designs of Apple products such as the iPhone.
Buckingham Palace has released the new emblem that will be featured throughout the ceremonies of the UK’s King Charles, who will be crowned in May 2023.
“It is such an honour to be able to contribute to this remarkable national occasion, and our team is so very proud of this work,” Sir Jony Ive said of his design for the emblem. “The design was inspired by King Charles’ love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world.”
“The emblem speaks to the happy optimism of spring and celebrates the beginning of this new Carolean era for the United Kingdom,” he continued.
“The gentle modesty of these natural forms combine to define an emblem that acknowledges both the joyful and profound importance of this occasion.”
The insignia, created in the colors red, white, and blue to match the British flag, symbolizes the flora of the UK’s four constituent countries.
This includes the English rose, the Scottish thistle, the Welsh daffodil, and the Northern Irish shamrock.
The main design is based on a portrayal of St Edward’s Crown, which will be used to crown King Charles at the Coronation Service.
On Saturday, May 6, 2023, the ceremony will be held in Westminster Abbey in London.
