Launch of the new Centenary Rose Pin

Specially designed Centenary rose pins are available for the public to buy from a number of charities and voluntary organisations in Northern Ireland.

A symbol of Northern Ireland’s beauty and bright future, the hand-made pins have been inspired by the blooming Centenary rose, bred by Colin Dickson of Dickson’s Roses, and planted in Hillsborough Castle’s gardens.

In exchange for a charitable donation to a good cause, the public can purchase a rose pin from a number of voluntary and charitable organisations based in Northern Ireland, including National Museums Northern Ireland, Guide Dogs Northern Ireland and Young Lives vs Cancer.

The hand-made pin has been designed in partnership with UK company Timeline. TimeLine was founded by Nick Humphery-Smith almost 30 years ago. Mr Humphrey-Smith has worked on designing and producing a large range of jewellery inspired by the Victoria and Albert, exclusively designed miniature Crowns under the Crowns & Regalia brand for Historic Royal Palaces and many other commissions.
