(Quercus fagaceae) In England, the English oak has assumed the status of a national emblem. This has its origins in the oak tree at Boscobel House, where the future King Charles II hid from his Parliamentarian pursuers in 1650 during the English Civil War. The tree has since been known as the Royal Oak. The naval associations are strengthened by the fact that oak was the main construction material for sailing warships. The Royal Navy was often described as The Wooden Walls of Old England.
