Artist's Description

Swan Upping is the annual census of the swan population on stretches of the Thames in the counties of Middlesex, Surrey, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Oxfordshire.

This historic ceremony dates from the twelfth century, when the Crown claimed ownership of all mute swans.

Swan Upping ceremony, The Queen’s Swan Marker, the Royal Swan Uppers and the Swan Uppers of the Vintners’ and Dyers’ livery companies use six traditional Thames rowing skiffs in their five-day journey up-river.

The Queen’s Swan Uppers wear traditional scarlet uniforms and each boat flies appropriate flags and pennants.
