Badge, Tudor Rose
Artist: Unknown English Primary
Royal badges depicting the Tudor Rose became popular after King Henry VII ended the Wars of the Roses. This emblem was officially recognized after Henry’s marriage to Elizabeth of York in 1486, which united the Houses of Lancaster and York. The Tudor Rose, a symbol of the family’s power, was carved into buildings and embroidered on clothing. The emblem is still used today on the uniforms of the Yeomen Warders of the Tower of London and the English 20 pence coin.
