What is it? Why it's a Yorkshire Rose. You must have heard of the Wars of the Roses. This was war between the House of York and the House of Lancaster. Yorkshire has a white rose and Lancashire has a red rose.
The Wars of the Roses were intermittent civil wars which took place between these two Houses, or families between 1455 and 1487 to see who would be King of England.
So who won? Sorry to say Lancashire won and the house of Tudor of Lancashire ruled Britain for about 116 years after that. To my shame, I had to look up that information!
Now in our house, we have me from Yorkshire, and Moth from Lancashire -- but no wars, please!
SO HAPPY YORKSHIRE DAY TO YOU!
