Heraldic Lion Pin Badge


Hand & Lock


Part of our Platinum Jubilee collection, The Heraldic Lion Pin Badge can be attached to any garment to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the accession of Queen Elizabeth II. 

The lion and the unicorn are, properly speaking, heraldic supporters which appear on the full Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom, the lion standing for England, and the unicorn for Scotland. The story of these two beasts and their repeated clashes actually represents the long-standing difficult position between the thrones of England and Scotland. The combination of Lion with Unicorn dates from the 1603 accession of King James I of England – who was already King James VI of Scotland. Unicorns are associated with purity, strength and power. The unicorn is chained because in mediaeval times a free unicorn was considered a very dangerous beast.
