Catherine of Aragon's Pomegranate

Catherine of Aragon used this badge during her time as Queen of England. The pomegranate with its peak to the seeds symbolizes fertility and abundance. Besides, the pomegranate was an exotic fruit and also represented Catherine's Spanish heritage.
The pomegranate is crowned which symbolises sovereignty and was the ultimate power symbol.
