  State crown - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term state crown was particularly used in the Kingdom of England and its successor Kingdom of Great Britain to describe the crowns of Kings Charles II and George I that were worn on occasions such as the State Opening of Parliament.
Unless the state crown of King Charles, the state crown of King George was also used to crown him with, in preference to the heavier and older St.
When, because of its age and fragility, the State Crown of George I was replaced in 1838, the new replacement crown was instead called the Imperial State Crown, as was its replacement in 1937.

Imperial State Crown - the crown manufactured for King George VI in 1937, and modelled on an earlier imperial crown from the reign of Queen Victoria, used by British monarchs at state ceremonies such as the State Opening of Parliament.
A head of state or chief of state is the chief public representative of a nation-state, federation or commonwealth, whose role generally includes personifying the continuity and legitimacy of the state and exercising powers, functions and duties granted to the head of state in the country's constitution.
In parliamentary systems the head of state may be merely the nominal chief executive officer of the state, possessing theoretical executive power (hence the description of the United Kingdom monarch's government as Her Majesty's Government, a term indicating that the government is theoretically hers, not parliament's).

 United Kingdom: Crowns on Flags
Unfortunately, the Queen Victoria state crown was often drawn in a weak, ill-defined style and later illustrators, presumably imagining that it was a badly drawn St Edward's crown, redrew it accordingly.
Prior to the accession of Edward VII (1902), the iconographic Crown was unregulated.
This is the official state crown for Scotland and would replace the St Edward's crown on any peculiarly Scottish flag, or flag created under the authority of the Scottish Executive, such as the Scottish Fisheries, or a Scottish constabulary.

The State and Crown oppose the application arguing that the zoning provisions do not apply to this construction, and in addition, the Town was fully notified of the location sited for the tower and it did not object in a timely fashion.
The State argues that due to its ongoing notice of the project, the Town's request should be denied as time-barred both in law and equity, and for a failure to state a cause of action.
On November 23, 2004, the state DOT wrote to the Town stating that it was of the opinion that the Town had no jurisdiction over this construction pursuant to an agreement between the State and Crown which is not subject to local zoning requirements.
