Scene 4 - lower border:

One of the Channel Island references is shown in the lower border near the end where the animals representing Guernsey (donkey), Jersey (toad) and Alderney (puffin) are shown being encircled by the English lion’s tail to represent that this was how the Channel Islands became English possession
