11 February 2023

Coronation 2023 Red Blue SmallThe official Coronation Emblem has been published by Buckingham Palace. It is available in Welsh and English, and guidelines for its use have also been published by the Lord Chamberlain's Office. The emblem can be downloaded in PDF and PNG formats, in two sizes, and in various colours, via this page.

The design pays tribute to The King’s love of the natural world, unifying the flora of the four nations of the United Kingdom: 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 will be crowned during the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on Saturday, 6th May. The emblem has been designed using the red, white and blue of the union flag.

The emblem was designed by Sir Jony Ive, KBE and his creative collective, LoveFrom. David White, Garter King of Arms, provided advice as to the heraldic aspects of the design.
