This Gold coloured Pin Badge LiverBird depicts the internationally recognised symbol of Liverpool. In the city, two 18 feet LiverBirds sit on top of the Royal Liver Building. Local legends claim that the LiverBirds are a male and female pair, the female looking out to sea to ensure the seamen are protected, while the male looks onto the city to protect the people of Liverpool.
The origin of the LiverBird dates back to 1229, when the King (Henry III) granted Liverpool the permission to be self-governing. This required a unique seal used to authenticate documents. The seal featured an image of the LiverBird which has been the city’s icon for over 800 years.
