Archive Fact

A little fact I found out today about the North Riding Badge- it was originally red with writing and the rose but the red colour could not be obtained during the Second World War so it changed to maroon and returned to its original red colour in the early 1950s  and when the county boundaries changed in the 1970s it changed from a ribbon badge to a woven bound North Yorkshire Badge we have today.
