Designing the Queen's Baton

The Story of the Commonwealth Queen's Baton.

The design team for the Queen's Baton explain how cutting edge techniques marry with traditional craftsmanship to create the baton.

The hand-crafted baton made of titanium, wood and granite will visit all 70 competing nations and territories ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

Will Mitchell, from 4c Design, revealed it was both a privilege and an honour to design the baton, which contains a hand-written message from the Queen.

The Commonwealth Games in Glasgow begin on 23 July 2014.
