The Heraldry, Flags, Signs and Symbols of Her Majesty’s Reign 1952 – 2022
Visual symbolism played a very important part in the seventy year reign of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
Covering events from the Festival of Britain to the Platinum Jubilee, this colourfully illustrated talk will examine the many variations of Royal symbolism, from Military uniform; the Heralds and Officers of Arms; to Coronation and Jubilee souvenirs. It will also give an insight into the role of some of the more unusual of the Queen’s servants and examine what will be changing during the reign of King Charles III.
The Speaker is Chairman of the White Lion Society (The Friends group for HM College of Arms) and has been fascinated by Heraldry, badges and graphic art for many more years than he cares to remember.Views: 287 | Enquiries: 2
