Beneath the crown of England, Britannia with her shield and Neptune's trident sits, flanked by the flag of the United Kingdom, and the Royal Standard. Behind her, illuminated by the British crown, is a map of the world with the British Empire in pink: Canada and Newfoundland, the United Kingdom, the Union of South Africa and British East Africa, India, Australia, and New Zealand.
Text:
Land of Hope and Glory (1)
Dear Land of Hope, thy hope is crowned,
God make thee mightier yet;
On Sov'ran brows, beloved, renowned,
Once more thy crown is set.
Thine equal laws, by Freedom gained,
Have ruled thee well and long;
By Freedom gained, by Truth maintained,
Thine Empire shall be stong.

On Sov'ran brows, beloved, renowned,

Once more thy crown is set.

Have ruled thee well and long;

By Freedom gained, by Truth maintained,

Thine Empire shall be stong.
