Armed Forces: Uniforms

Volume 458: debated on Monday 26 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence at what points Ministers have sought permission from Her Majesty the Queen for servants of the Crown to wear European Union flag unit insignia upon their uniforms. (129242)

The European Union insignia as worn is not formally a flag, but a circular patch. Approval from Her Majesty the Queen is required for the wearing of insignia which contain a crown. The European Union symbol, worn below the Union flag, does not fall into this category.
