The Brunswick star is an emblem which in outline is an eight-pointed or sixteen-pointed star, but which is composed of many narrow rays. It is used in Great Britain to surround the Royal Cypher on various badges, such as that worn on the caps and helmets of almost all police forces in England and Wales. The name Brunswick refers to the German Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg, better known as principality of Hanover, which was ruled by the House of Hanover whose heads also became kings of Great Britain.
