Unidentified blazer badge
« on: Thursday 14 October 21 14:24 BST (UK) »
Can anyone identify this please? It was found in a school archive so may well be associated with sport.

It appears to have the initials NCHA above a Tudor Rose, although the rose is unusual in that I have always seen the white rose offset from the red rose (ie rotated through 36 degrees).

There are groups with the initials NCHA (including some ending Hockey Association) but none that I have seen with this emblem.

Strictly speaking, in heraldry, the Tudor Rose is not constrained to one design.   

I have seen concentric circles, red, white, red, white; quartered red and white; divided in half (usually vertically) red and white; quartered like an X, like this and offset.
As long as the rose is red and white it is classed as a Tudor Rose. 

Just saying that any of those designs with the initials NCHA would be a contender.

Thanks for the replies.
That suggestion looks good, although the flag is much more modern than the badge I think.
I may contact them.
