With the 6th of May just a month away, the UK is preparing for His Majesty, King Charles III’s Coronation.
The official emblem was designed by Sir Jony Ive KBE and his team at LoveForm. It was unveiled by Buckingham Palace. This new emblem symbolises the beginning of a new era while celebrating the history of his family.
Sir Jony Ive KBE is a British designer who has worked alongside The Royal Family since 2003. He holds honorary doctorates from the best universities in the country, Oxford, and Cambridge! He also has an honorary doctorate from the Royal College of Art, this is where he currently has the role of chancellor.
This new emblem will be the star of the official royal celebration decorations throughout the month of May. You will also see it heavily featured at the service in Westminster Abbey and at the Coronation Concert.

This coronation’s emblem pays homage to His Majesty’s admiration of the natural world intertwining the national flowers of the four nations of the United Kingdom:
· England- Rose
· Northern Ireland- Shamrock
· Wales- Daffodil
· Scotland- Thistle
It is such a unique and beautiful piece of historic art that will be loved for many years to come.
This coronation gives communities around the world to come together and celebrate this historic event. Whether it’s through street parties or creating craft projects in schools. It's a lovely day to get together, especially after the tough times throughout the pandemic.
As well as the coronation of His Majesty and the Queen Consort, we are going to be seeing brand new coins, stamps, and post boxes come into circulation with King Charles III’s portrait on them!
This coronation will fall on Saturday 6th May and will be continuing the celebrations through to the Bank Holiday Monday (8th). Now is the perfect time to grab some art and craft supplies and get making some decorations to commemorate this historic event.
