One of British Airways’ fleet of 747s is now featuring a very special emblem to mark

logo has been emblazoned on the side of the British Airways aircraft alongside the words,
“Congratulations, Celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee”.

to see my design in so many different places around the UK but I never expected to see it

to fly on this plane so I can look out the window at my design.”

can’t think of anything more fitting than British Airways carrying a message of
congratulations to Her Majesty around the world.”
