The mascot often found on the radiator cap of a Rolls-Royce motor car is officially called "The Spirit of Ecstasy".

When we are being casual we often call it "The Flying Lady", and in certain parts of the UK it is known as "The Flying Angel". There are one or two other names used by some, but they tend to be a little too frivolous and disrespectful.

For more information on The Spirit of Ecstasy, please see the articles in our Online Library at http://rroc.org.au/library/index.html.

Within the confines of the factory at Crewe (as it used to be) she is known as 'Phyllis'. And as an additional piece of useless information, the Viking on the Rover badge was always known as 'George'.
