White Cockade - Jacobite Rose

The White Cockade, also known as the Jacobite Rose, is a symbol rich in history and tradition. In 1688, King James VII of Scotland and II of England was deposed in what became known as the 'Glorious Revolution'. Supporters of the exiled Stuart monarchs became known as ‘Jacobites’.

James attempted to regain his throne in 1689, ultimately being defeated in Ireland at the Battle of the Boyne. James’ son, the ‘Old Pretender’ James VIII and III, made his attempt in 1715, landing in Scotland with a small force and rallying the nobles and Highland Clans. He was forced to flee after the bloody Battle of Sheriffmuir.

Finally, in 1745, the third Stuart, the dashing Charles Edward Stuart, the ‘Young Pretender’ or ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie’, made a bid to reclaim the thrones of Britain, via Scotland. Charles’ charisma drew the Highland Clans to him, and his army made it all the way to Derby in England, before fatefully turning back to Scotland. He was defeated at the Battle of Culloden.

The Jacobites distinguished themselves during the '45 Rebellion with white cockades, folded ribbons sewn onto their hats to resemble a white rose, one of the symbols of the exiled Stuarts.

Our White Cockade is meticulously crafted from corded silk and features a brooch pin on the back for easy attachment. Measuring approximately 85mm square, this elegant accessory is a perfect homage to a storied past.
