The emblem of the UK
The floral symbols of the UK
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has four historic parts: England with its capital in London, Scotland with its capital in Edinburgh, Wales with its capital in Cardiff and Northern Ireland with its capital in Belfast. The floral symbol of England is the RED ROSE. The red rose has been its symbol since 1485.
The Irish symbol is another wild plant called the SHAMROCK. This plant helped St Patrick explain to the people of his country what the Holy Trinity is. A shamrock has three leaves to unify the Holy Trinity: God the Father, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit.
The Scottish symbol is a wild plant called the THISTLE. According to the legend, this plant saved the country from an enemy invasion.
The Welsh symbol is a vegetable called the LEEK (or, on occasion, the flower, the daffodil). The patron saint of Wales, David, ate only leeks and bread. In memory of this Christian saint, the leek became the symbol of Wales. Daffodils whish burst into flames by the 1st of March celebrate the reserved Welsh saint.
The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh have been married for 60 year.
The Queen sends telegrams to people who reach the age of 100 years.
