Harrow’s logo pin features St. Mary’s on the Hill, the Borough and Parish Church at Harrow on the Hill which is said to have once been a favourite haunt of Romantic poet Lord Byron.

The image was chosen by Londoners who last September were offered the chance by LOCOG and London Councils to vote for ‘the most iconic landmark in their borough’.

Each of the landmarks has now been re-created into a metal pin badge incorporating the London 2012 logo.

The badges will be sold around London. See what features on other badges here
