About this design...
An English national emblem—and symbol of peace and unity—the five-petal rose was adopted after Henry Tudor married Elizabeth of York in 1486 and ascended the throne as King Henry VII. The Lancaster red rose combined with the York white rose symbolized the unification of their warring houses.
