These Colours were presented 24 April, 2010, at Mile One Stadium, St. John's, by the Colonel In Chief, Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne, The Princess Royal. The current Regimental Colour shown here does not yet display the three Battle Honours awarded in 2012 for the War of 1812.

Current Colours (2nd Battalion):

A photo of the Colours of the 2nd Battalion are not yet available. The 2nd Battalion Colours are identical to 1st Battalion Colours with the exception of 'II' in place of 'I'.

Former Colours:

Shown are the Colours of the Regiment as they appeared 1964, when there was only one set of Colours for the Regiment. The 2nd Battalion was formed in 1975, and each battalion has had individual battalion Colours since then. These Colours were presented by HCol Sir Leonard Outerbridge to the Regiment in 1959.

The Queen's Colour is based on the Union Flag because the present Canadian Flag was not adopted until 1966. The Queen's Colour was subsequently based on the Canadian Flag.
