Great Seal of Queen Elizabeth I [Reverse] (SC 12/N3)

  1. Can you find :
  • a fleur de lys
  • a harp
  • clouds and rays around the Queen’s head
  • a horse with plaited mane
  • Tudor Rose
  1. The Tudor Rose was the emblem of the Tudor monarchs and stands for England. Why do you think it is on both sides of Elizabeth’s seal?
  2. A fleur-de-lys stands for France, which country does the harp stand for?
  3. Why would she want to include these symbols?
