Leicester City Council is looking for an Organisation to create a decorative Mayoral Collar to hold a ceremonial badge of office.

The Mayoral Collar and badge will be used by the Lord Mayor of Leicester whilst in Civic Visit when it is not possible to wear the full civic regalia.

The Collar needs to be black velvet, decorated with brocade or embroidery. The design should be traditional and ornate, in keeping with the ancient tradition of the Office of Lord Mayor.

There should be a secure clip on the lanyard to allow the badge of office to be attached securely and detached when not in use (as shown on Image 1).

The measurements should be:

From top to bottom 40cm
Width at the bottom 12cm
Width at the top 6com
A template can be provided.

Inspiration from the design may be drawn from the chains currently in use which show the word LEICESTER and the cinquefoil, acorns and the robes worn by the Lords Mayor on specific occasions. Photographscan be found below – Images 2, 3 and 4.

Once created, the pattern for the Mayoral Collar remains the property of Leicester City Council.
