King Charles’ coronation emblem by ex Apple chief designer revealed
Ahead of the scheduled coronation ceremony for Britain’s King Charles III on 6 May, 2023, the Buckingham Palace released the newly appointed king’s official coronation emblem. The coronation emblem features the King’s love for nature by joining the flora that symbolize the four nations of the United Kingdom in a single image. The logo, to be used for events over the coronation long weekend in May, features a rose, thistle, daffodil and shamrock – emblems from across the United Kingdom.
The logo, also available in a Welsh-language version, is the latest detail to be revealed from the planned celebrations to mark the coronation, which will be held at Westminster Abbey on 6 May. The day will include a carriage procession and traditional appearances on the Buckingham Palace balcony, although it is still not known who will be attending – with no confirmation yet whether the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be there.
