King Charles’s coronation emblem made by iPhone designer Sir Jony Ive revealed

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

The design guru created the insignia taking inspiration from His Majesty’s “love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world”.

Sir Jony – who is credited as the creative mind behind the iPhone – and his creative collective, LoveFrom, have produced the image to honour Charles’s reign.

It features a stylised image of the crown of St Edward, which will be used in the ceremony, created from the rose of England, thistle of Scotland, daffodil of Wales and the shamrock of Northern Ireland, in the red, white and blue of the Union flag.

Sir Jony said: “It is such an honour to be able to contribute to this remarkable national occasion, and our team is so very proud of this work.

“The design was inspired by King Charles’s love of the planet, nature, and his deep concern for the natural world.

The coronation emblem will feature throughout the bank holiday weekend, which will begin when Charles is crowned on Saturday 6 May at Westminster Abbey.

The following day, thousands of spectators – awarded tickets in a national ballot – will watch a star-studded Windsor Castle concert as the celebrations continue.

It will also be seen at other national events, street parties, and community gatherings marking the event and be used on all official merchandise commemorating the coronation.

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

It was an ambitious Magna Carta-style charter to encourage the private sector to safeguard the planet by adopting sustainability and invest $10bn (£8bn) in “natural capital”.
