A series of WW2 RAF squadron crests were illustrated on behalf of an online enthusiasts group. Both sides of the Battle of Britain conflict were catered for – this is a selection of some from the RAF squadrons involved.
Vector art was required as images over a certain size are hard to find, and many were lost, although descriptions remain.
These crests use the Tudor Crown, sometimes mistakenly referred to as the ‘King’s Crown’, which was in use prior to 1952. Another project we have carried out for more modern times, depicts the St Edward’s Crown instead, which came to replace the Tudor Crown as it was a more life-like depiction of the actual crown.
