It pays tribute to the King's love of the natural world

Buckingham Palace has unveiled King Charles III's official Coronation Emblem, celebrating the historic beginning of the new reign.

The graphic, designed by Sir Jony Ive using an iPhone, pays tribute to the King's love of the natural world. Featuring Union Jack colours, it depicts the flora of the four nations in the shape of St Edward's Crown: the rose of England, the thistle of Scotland, the daffodil of Wales and the shamrock of Northern Ireland.

The emblem will feature throughout the historic celebrations in May, including the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey, Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, street parties, and community gatherings around the country. It will also be used for all official merchandise commenting the special occasion, featuring on mugs, plates and tea towels.

"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. The design was inspired by King Charles' love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world," Sir Jony Ive said.

"The emblem speaks to the happy optimism of spring and celebrates the beginning of this new Carolean era for the United Kingdom. The gentle modesty of these natural forms combine to define an emblem that acknowledges both the joyful and profound importance of this occasion."

Anyone can download the Coronation Emblem image to use at their own party. Head to for more information.

The Coronation Gin is the latest creation from Gin In A Tin, made in collaboration with Historic Royal Palaces. We love the beautiful design, which features a magnificent gold foiled crown, adorned with the iconic symbols of the four nations of the United Kingdom: a classic English rose, a traditional Scottish thistle, a springtime Welsh daffodil and the delicate Irish shamrock.

Upon sipping, you will notice distinctive notes of coriander, cardamom, lemon peel and botanicals centred around juniper berries. This tipple makes for the ultimate royal celebration drink, particularly when making a classic gin cocktail.
