    The carona crown is different. The crown AND style of the poster is copied from a well known British poster "Keep Calm and Carry On"  The CDC  poster is meant to be a replication or parody of the British Posters.

    They are not, it is quite different in detail.

    The one in the CDC poster is actually the Tudor crown, as used in the UK Royal coat of arms:

    Note the obvious fleur de lis either side of centre, and the inverted T icon at the top.

    The Corona beer on has neither.
