Rose motif. Most likely derivative of the popular Tudor Rose emblem which depicts a red rose superimposed on the center of a white rose. The symbol signifies the combination of the red rose of the House of Lancaster and the white rose of the House of York at the conclusion of the late 16th century Wars of the Roses.
