CANDLE IN THE DIVINE WIND Part 4 – the Royal Standard

The Royal Standard is the flag or banner that represents the Sovereign and the United Kingdom. It is flown only when the Sovereign is present and if you see it flying above Buckingham Palace you know the Queen is in residence. Royal protocol is exact and exacting and doesn’t change easily – there are centuries of ritual and history associated with the Royal emblems and ceremonies.

When the idea for CANDLE IN THE DIVINE WIND began developing into sketches and compositional drawings the work was titled “Royal Standard – A Dream To Die For”. Perhaps this may be the better title … once you see the finished piece let us know what you think.
