The Green Man, an ancient figure, is central to the design and is symbolic of spring and rebirth. The Green Man is crowned in natural foliage, formed of leaves of oak, ivy and hawthorn and the emblematic flowers of the United Kingdom.

Several British wildflowers border the invitation and also include wildlife. The flowers appear in threes, signifying the King’s regnal number.
