The White Rose of York (also called the Rose Alba or Rose Argent), is a white heraldic rose and a symbol of the House of York which has since been adopted as a symbol of Yorkshire as a whole.
During the English civil wars of the fifteenth century, the White Rose was the symbol of Yorkist forces opposed to the rival House of Lancaster.
