June 1, 1954, America had its first taste of the now "iconic flame-grilled Whopper® sandwich." Today, to celebrate the 68th birthday of this behemoth burger brand now known around the world, Burger King is debuting a brand-new limited-edition birthday crown at participating restaurants nationwide. If you are a Royal Perks member, you can also celebrate with a free Whopper Jr. sandwich with any $1+ purchase for today only via the BK app or website and at participating restaurants.

The folks at Burger King are also marking this anniversary with a brand-new, limited edition birthday crown. They turned to Brazilian born, Miami-based artist Romero Britto to put his signature colorful style on those iconic birthday crowns.

"Some of my first memories of moving to the United States include going to Burger King and getting a Whopper and a crown. It was the only restaurant I frequented – in fact, my first date with my wife was at a Burger King – so this collaboration felt like a natural fit," Britto said in a statement. He added, "Having the opportunity to redesign the iconic BK crown is such an honor and having been a fan of the brand for so long this partnership brings it all full circle."

Britto's commemorative crowns feature vibrant, colorful patterns with a pop-art style burger and fries and are available while supplies last. For those who get their hands on one of these limited-edition crowns pop that crown on your head and post a selfie crown or GIF sticker and sharing it on Instagram tagging @burgerking and using the hashtag @BKBdayCrownSweepstakes for a chance to win a year of free Burger King.
