The device on the present flag - The Prince of Wales’s Three Feathers argent, quilled or out of a Prince’s coronet or. A Badge of Edward, son of Edward III - was granted to the Coldstream Guards by William III in 1696. It is one of twenty-four borne on the Coldstream Guards’ company marking flags, also known as camp flags or camp colours. After 1962 badges of Nos. 1 to 5 Companies were allotted to the 1st Battalion Coldstream Guards. Hitherto the allocation of Company badges to Battalions in the Coldstream Guards ‘was a most complex matter’. Framed and glazed.
