Inspired by the iconic Tudor Rose this delightful pin badge this colourful badge is the perfect gift for a lover of history.

The Tudor rose is an imagined rose used as a heraldic symbol to unite the Houses of Lancaster and York following the war of the Roses, Lancaster is represented by a red rose and the house of York by a White rose. But in the 16th century a naturally occurring rose was seen with red and white striped petals, which seemed to suit the idea of a two coloured rose quite neatly. Its correct scientific name is Rosa gallica ‘Versicolor’.

The Tudor Rose became the emblem of the Tudor Dynasty and was instigated by Henry VII. It commemorated the end of the Wars of the Roses between the House of York (symbolised by a white rose) and the House of Lancaster (symbolised by a red rose). Thus the red and white rose is the Tudor Rose.
