But why did Lancs get the best rose?
Gee orr

The purity,class dignity and sense of betterment and wellbeing bestowed by the whitest of white roses knocks that red nosed comic excuse of a wilted, flyblown flower into a cocked hat (or flat cap!)

Because they won the war and got to choose which rose was which.
A Welsh fella won the war and choose to stick the two roses together. Then his dynasty died within two generations. Hardly worth it.


Happy Yorkshire day to one and all, even those devils across the Pennines. All rise -

The different colour roses were created by the Tudors, after coming to power. Prior to that, a red rose never signified Lancashire, and a white rose never signified Yorkshire. Henry Tudor wanted an emblem that showed that the country was united under his rule. Someone came up with the roses thing and made the Tudor combined one, which signifies the King's marriage to Elizabeth of York. The term "wars of the roses" was invented by Shakespeare years later.
