The official emblem for Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022 has been revealed in both English and Welsh.
Nineteen-year-old graphic design student Edward Roberts from Nottinghamshire designed the emblem as his entry was chosen as the winner of Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Emblem Competition.
Buckingham Palace in partnership with the V&A Museum invited young people, aged 13 – 25, to participate in a competition to design the official emblem.
Edward chose purple, a colour traditionally symbolises Royalty – a shade which matches Queen Elizabeth’s Robe of Estate and Coronation Gown – in consultation with the Royal Collection Trust.
His design includes the St Edward’s Crown, to create the impression of a Royal Seal, and incorporated the number ’70’, signifying the Platinum Jubilee, within the top of the Crown.
The circle is surrounded by the font ‘Perpetua’, (meaning ‘forever’) and reflects the font style which appeared on The Queen’s Coronation Order Service on 2 June 1953.
Edward said, ‘For my design, I wanted to give a modern twist to the iconic elements of St Edward’s Crown, and so I created a continuous line, which I felt was a fitting representation of The Queen’s reign.’
Year-long celebrations will take place in Great Britain, the Commonwealth and around the world to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s historic reign including public events, community activities and national moments of reflection on her 70 years of service.
An extended bank holiday, from Thursday, 2, to Sunday, 5 June, will include the traditional Trooping the Colour, a Service of Thanksgiving, the Derby at Epsom Downs and the Platinum Party at the Palace, a big Platinum Jubilee lunch and pageant, and lighting Platinum Jubilee beacons across Great Britain, the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and UK Overseas Territories.
For the first time, beacons will also be lit in Commonwealth countries’ capital cities to celebrate this historic milestone.
