It did get me thinking: Does anyone know when the School started using a coat of arms featuring a yellow rose as opposed to the white one mentioned above? I wonder if this is a deliberate decision or just a mistake that has gone so far unnoticed. As I imagine the answer is the former, does anyone have any idea of the reasoning behind it?Foureyes wrote:Just for the record, I have done a bit of delving and the correct description of the Christ's Hospital coat-of-arms is:
