CHK10 Ceremonial Flag Base & British Crown Colony of Hong Kong Flag
The Colonial Hong Kong flag comprised the British Blue Ensign with the Colony’s ‘Coat of Arms’ in a white circle in the fly of the flag. The shield shows two junks upon blue and white stripes representing the sea topped by a lion holding a pearl, a reference to Hong Kong’s nickname as ‘The Pearl of the Orient.’
The shield as a whole is supported by a British Lion and a Chinese Dragon.
The Flag and its staff fit neatly into a sturdy grey stone base.
THE ROYAL HONG KONG REGIMENT (The Volunteers) was a militia formation founded in 1854 and tasked with the defense of the small Colony alongside the regular British Army garrison stationed there. For many years it would join with other British Forces in taking part in the Queen’s Birthday Parade held annually in the city.
Taking the official salute on behalf of the Queen would be her representative, His Excellency, The Governor, resplendent in his ‘Tropical Whites’ and saluting as the different units marched past.
The above price is US$ and A$ price will be calculated at time of purchase.
