Help to ID Beret Badge. Winged Lion, Astral Crown

Recommended Posts

Here is another mystery (to me) beret badge.

It measures 2" by 2" and apperars to be brass.

It is unmarked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The winged lion - symbol of St Mark the evangelist - is often associated with the city [or state in earlier times] of Venice.

But the badge doesn't look Italian to me.  The crown is very odd too - can we get a better shot of that?  Perhaps just on a sheet of paper or cloth?  Thanks.

I would date to pre. 1970's. The full name is "British Overseas Airways Corporation"
