United Kingdom Army Regimental and Unit Flags

The principal administrative unit of the Army is the regiment. Each regiment has its own long history, traditions and insignia, and this includes the flags they use. The flags flown by regiments and their component sub-units (whether battalions, companies, squadron, troops or batteries) are not paid from the public purse, but by each individual regiment from commercial suppliers. The emblem is usually the regimental cap badge or emblem. Because they are bought from commercial suppliers, there are inevitably some changes in style or details over time. Additionally, some manufacturers market ranges of flags aiming for the nostalgia market, whose designs are different again from the flags used by the regiment.

The illustrated collection below attempts to show some of the hundreds of different military flags and ensigns used by United Kingdom Army units and commands.1 It is by no means meant to be conclusive of all the flags, colours, and standards that are used.
