Design a Jubilee Arch

On her way to her coronation in 1953, The Queen’s carriage passed under four triumphal arches constructed along the Mall. Each comprised four intersecting arcs surmounted by the heraldic Lion and the Unicorn and with a coronet suspended beneath.

However, the tradition of erecting a triumphal arch in honour of a monarch or ruler, dates back to Roman times. Designs for Tudor, Stuart and Hanovarian arches can be found in prints and drawings within The Royal Collection.

Arches were often made from inexpensive materials which were decorated to look expensive, and were usually temporary structures. The unique structures were often brightly painted such as in Tudor or Stuart times.

To celebrate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee in 1887 and her Diamond Jubilee in 1897, arches were built across the United Kingdon and the world.

Use the template to design your own fantastic arch to celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.
