The Royal Dragoon Guards is a tank unit of the British Army formed on 1st August 1992 as a result of the amalgamation of the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards and the 5th Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards. They have a site at Army: Corps, Regiments & Units, but the flag-graphic there is not exactly like the one they apparently fly in the field - I saw the latter one in news photos following the crash of a British C-130 in Iraq a few months ago. A horizontal tricolor of dark red, yellow and dark green, with the badge centered. I think that the center stripe looks a bit narrower than the others, though they are equal on some of the graphics on the above site - considerable divergence in colors too. The proportions look to me to be 3:5, consistent with the flag-graphic in the top right corner there. Their regimental standard can also be seen at RDG Museum website.
