Jubilee celebrations

Jubilees have their origins in ancient Hebrew times. In the modern United Kingdom and in some other countries, it is the name given to collective series of events celebrating significant periods of the anniversary of the monarch's reign. Queen Elizabeth II acceded to the throne of the United Kingdom on 06 February 1952 and has celebrated a Silver Jubilee (twenty-five years) in 1977 and a Golden Jubilee (fifty years) in 2002. Queen Victoria, the longest serving British monarch, celebrated a Diamond Jubilee in 1897, marking sixty years of her reign.

Description of the Golden Jubilee Flag

The flag below is one of the two designs being used for celebratory flags. The garland of flowers comprises roses, thistles, daffodils and shamrocks for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The flag is golden yellow with the centred garland, within it the crowned royal cypher (EIIR) all in blue, and the dates 1952 and 2002 on the hoist and fly, also in blue.

The basic flag (without Cardiff text) was designed by Graham and - I think - approved by the Palace during a meeting there with him and Robin Ashburner. NOTE: 'approved' in this case means 'accepted', and not 'official'.
