The Tudor rose is the official flower of the society, and the official colors are red and white. A symbol of unity, the Tudor rose (representing the end of the 40-year struggle for possession of the English throne known as the War of the Roses) is supported by the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew as they are depicted on the Union Flag of 1707. The Tudor rose consists of the larger red rose of Lancaster with the smaller white rose of York impressed upon it -- five petals upon five petals. In 1584 the first English colony in North America was claimed in the name of Queen Elizabeth I of England, the last Tudor monarch.
