King Charles Coronation Emblem Designed by Former Apple Chief Design Officer. The emblem honors the 74-year-old monarch’s passion for nature by incorporating 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.
London: Buckingham Palace revealed the official emblem for King Charles III’s upcoming coronation, set for May 6, which features a circular floral design created by a renowned British designer behind Apple iPhone designs.
Sir Jony Ive, who formerly served as the Chief Design Officer at Apple and owned over 14,000 patents worldwide, designed the emblem through his creative group “LoveFrom” to signify the historic start of the new reign, known as the UK’s Carolean era.
About King Charles Coronation Logo
The emblem brings together 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 – as a tribute to the 74-year-old monarch’s passion for nature.
I’ve expressed his pride in contributing to the momentous national event and the team’s work creating the emblem.
The emblem’s design draws inspiration from King Charles’s love for nature and the planet and his deep concern for the environment.
Symbolizing the new Carolean era for the UK, the emblem evokes the happy optimism of spring.
According to Ive, the natural forms in the emblem represent the occasion’s joyful and profound significance, conveying gentle modesty.
The flowers come together to form the shape of St. Edward’s Crown, which will be used to crown the King during the Coronation Service at Westminster Abbey on May 6.
The emblem incorporates the UK’s national flag’s red, white, and blue colors.
Buckingham Palace confirmed that the emblem would feature prominently during the Coronation celebrations in May, including the service at Westminster Abbey and the Coronation Concert at Windsor Castle, as well as national events, street parties, and community gatherings.
The emblem will also be used on all official merchandise commemorating the Coronation of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, as well as across digital and social media.
LoveFrom is a creative group comprising designers, architects, musicians, filmmakers, writers, engineers, and artists. Founded by Ive in 2019, the collective has studios in London and San Francisco.
The Coronation emblem designed by LoveFrom will be accessible for all activities related to a sequence of events over the long celebratory weekend between May 6 and 8. These include community and national events, publications, retail, and merchandising.
The palace’s official website will provide guidelines for using the emblem.
