Royal Coat of Arms The main element of the Royal Arms is the shield which is divided into four quarters (see diagram). The three golden lions on a red background, symbolising England, occupy the first and fourth quarters. The Arms of Scotland, a red lion rearing on its hind legs inside a red border, are in the second quarter, and the Arms of Ireland's golden harp with silver strings on a blue background - are in the third quarter. The lion and the unicorn supporting the shield represent England and Scotland respectively.

They stand on a small frame called the compartment which sometimes incorporates the plant emblems of Scotland (thistle), Ireland (shamrock) and England (rose). Around the shield is a belt or strap with the motto Honi soit qui mal y pense ("Evil to him who evil thinks"), the symbol of the Order of the Garter.

This symbol on the King's shield would immediately identify him in the midst of battle. The Arms of the Stuart kings remained very similar to those of James 1st.

När det började närma sig BETT-vecka och avresa började jag fundera på hur jag skulle kunna låta det här bli till nytta även för mina elever. Jag har beslutat mig för att göra en flipp för att mina elever ska lära sig lite om London. De har därför fått i "läxa"att ge mig uppdrag att utföra i London. För att kunna ge mig uppdragen måste de först läsa på en del i ämnet. Uppdragen till mig kommer eleverna att skriva in i en survey som ligger sist i flippen, men som jag väljer att inte publicera här.
