A national competition to design an “official emblem” for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee 2012 attracted over 35,000 entries from school children across the nation aged between 6 and 14.
Katherine, along with the winners and runners up from each age category, was invited to meet the Queen at a special reception at Buckingham Palace in February 2011.
The winning design, which becomes the official Diamond Jubilee emblem, is for use by organisations and individuals who have an interest in celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. The emblem is free of charge to use and is available, along with instructions for use, via the British Monarchy website.
Blue Peter, commenting on the The BBC Blue Peter website said: “We’ve never had a competition like this! This is only the second ever Diamond Jubilee, and a child has never designed an official Jubilee emblem before.”
