In Ancient Britain The Battle of the Roses were a series of battles that were fought between the supporters of the House of Lancaster (Lancastrians) and the supporters of the House of York (Yorkists).
The wars were called the Wars of the Roses because the Yorkists were represented by a white rose and the Lancastrians by a red rose.
Now the sport event betwwen York University and Lancastrian university is known as Battle oo Rosses
