Collecting the folklore and uses of plants

St George’s Day wreaths

Posted on by royvickery |

Wreaths of artificial red roses (Rosa cv.) placed at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London, presumably on St George’s Day, 23 April.

All the wreaths were identical with an image of St George slaying dragon with the caption ‘St George for England’ in the centre, and most were laid by local groups of the Royal Society of St George, which describes itself as ‘England’s premier patriotic organisation’.

Photographed 3 May 2019.
