Arms of King George VI T-Shirt - King George VI ruled the British Empire from 1937 - 1952. This is his coat of arms from when he was Duke of York. It is very similar to the Royal Coat of arms of the United Kingdom. In the quadrants the triple lions represent England, the single lion Scotland, and the harp Ireland. Yes, England is in there twice. The Scottish unicorn is chained because an unchained unicorn was considered very dangerous. You'll feel quite regal in this British coat of arms t-shirt.
