I agree it is probably a souvenir, picked up in England. The entire image is that of the Royal Coat of Arms, which is the emblem of the Queen of England. The shield represents England in the first and fourth quarters, Scotland in the second quarter and Ireland in the third quarter. The crest at the top has the royal lion symbolizing the Queen herself, the Lion of England supports from the Queen's Right and the unicorn of Scotland supports from the Queen's Left. The color of the Scottish Lion should be a red lion and border on a yellow background. The fact that it is off makes me believe that it is not from the Royal Family. The change in color is probably done on purpose, so that it could be sold as a souvenir. Selling the real coat as it should be would require the permission of the Queen herself, which she is not likely to grant. Producing it without her permission could get someone in a lot of trouble with the law. The color variation may have been enough to let them get away with it.
