Royal banners

Royal banners are special flags presented to commemorate specific services. Designs vary by circumstances. Royal banners:

  • are presented at public expense as special marks of Royal favour, on specific occasions
  • may be carried on parade on important ceremonial occasions for the organization concerned
  • are not consecrated Colours and do not receive the compliments paid to consecrated Colours
  • are not replaced when worn beyond usable life, but are then deposited, like Colours, as memorials to the service which the banner commemorates
