Applications are now open for the commemorative use of Royal names and titles for community events, buildings
and projects for Her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, which takes place next year.
A blanket approval is in place for the use of 'Diamond Jubilee' and 'Jubilee' for non-commercial purposes.
Anyone wishing to use phrases such as 'Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee,' 'Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee,'
or 'The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee' to name a building or project, will need to apply for permission to do so.
The rules for the use of Royal names and titles were also relaxed in the run up to the Golden Jubilee in 2002.
They were used for a wide range of projects including the Golden Jubilee National Hospital in Clydebank,
Scotland; the Golden Jubilee Gospel Choir (which took part in the Jubilee Weekend celebrations) and Easingwold
Community Primary School in York who named their new teaching block 'The Golden Jubilee rooms'.
