The National Bouquet: A New Symbol for Britain
The National Bouquet is a symbol of unification, designed to represent this new beginning for the people of Britain. The symbol features the national flowers of Scotland, Northern Ireland, England, and Wales — A representation of the nation’s united diversity, and a welcoming, forward-looking outlook for its future.

Flowers were chosen as they're an object of the people, rather than that of the government — And, like our nation, they have to be cared for to ensure a healthy future.
The National Bouquet is also a symbol for spring; A time of renewal, and a historic marker for this time of redefinition by its peoples.

The back-side features an emboss of The Royal Coat of Arms, alongside a mention to the nation’s position within The Commonwealth.
