This rose window is situated in the south transept of York Minster Cathedral and dates back as far as the 13th Century. It came to fame more recently when it was damaged in a fire during the 1980s.The design of this window is unusual for its lack of obvious religious imagery. The outer circle depicts alternating red and white roses representing both the Lancastrian and Tudor roses, a reference to the Houses of Lancaster and Tudor and Henry VII marriage to Elizabeth of York. The inner circle contains a sunflower which is a more recent addition (circa 1793).
This rose window is perhaps more simple in design than many others of its time but there is no doubt that it is incredibly striking due to the vibrant colours and unusual imagery.
