iPhone designer Sir Jony Ive’s King Charles coronation emblem revealed | UK news

The emblem for King Charles’ coronation, created by former Apple designer Sir Jony Ive, has been revealed.

The design guru created the badges drawing inspiration from His Majesty “His love of the planet, nature and deep concern for the natural world.”

It features a stylized image of St Edward’s Crown, to be used in the ceremony, created from the rose of England, thistle of Scotland, daffodil of Wales and shamrock of Northern Ireland, in the red, white and blue of the Union Flag .

Sir Jony has supported projects involving the King in the past, having designed the charter document layout for the royal family’s Terra Carta or Earth Charter project which launched in 2021.

It was an ambitious Magna Carta-style map to encourage the private sector to protect the planet by adopting sustainability and invest $10bn (£8bn) in ‘natural capital’.
