As a result, the current Hull mace carries the Royal Arms of the 18th- century House of Hanover.
Civic maces in England are based on the earlier weapon of the same name.
Although much smaller than later civic versions, the war mace was also used to show who was in charge.
Hull silversmith Stephen Bramston was commissioned to work on the current mace, receiving a fee of £76 and 14 shillings.
The earliest reco- rded ceremonial mace in Hull dates back to 1427.
