And the winner is ––– 10 year old Lucas Salinger from the CoE Primary School in Hertfordshire in the Diocese of St Albans. Lucas’ design features a circular crest of children holding hands and is divided by a cross patterned after the cross in the primary school’s parish church, the Church of the Holy Trinity. The quarters of the crest have birthday candles, the number 90 and the crest is surmounted by Elizabeth II’s Latin insignia, E ii R (Elizabeth Regina II) and the royal crown. Lucas was competing against 1000+ designs submitted by other children.

The Queen will turn 90 on 21 APR. However, in the UK and other of Her Majesty’s realms her subjects elaborate an official birthday for the monarch. In the UK her official birthday is celebrated on a Saturday in June. This year it is being celebrated during the weekend including 11 JUN.

The images and the original story are from the Anglican Communion News Service.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
