This morning, on BBC Television Channel 1 (BBC 1), on their news program
'News in the North West', there was a report that featured a brief glimpse of
the flag of the British Prison Service: on a white rectangle a smaller blue
rectangle so arranged as to provide wide white margins. Within the blue
rectangle there is a representation of a castle in white (presumably Lancaster
Castle, a medieval structure which is still used in part as an active prison).
Beneath the castle the following
words are written in white block letters in two lines: 'H. M. PRISON SERVICE.'
