The statuette for the 2014 BRIT Awards was designed by Irish milliner Philip Treacy. Taking the form of Britannia (the national personification of Britain), the trophy has been redesigned by various artists since the BRIT Awards revamp in 2011. Treacy stated that music has always been his inspiration, with the 2014 trophy being inspired by "a uniquely British genre of music, Punk." It was unveiled on 28 November 2013. The statuette has a glossy black finish, with a black and white circular hat that represents a mohawk, which sits atop the helmet at the apex of the trophy.
