Overall: 55cm (22in) x 64.5cm (25.2in)

Sewn silk Union flag with the Company badge ensigned with the Imperial State Crown and the Company numeral on a scroll in the centre. Framed and glazed. Flag: 46cm (18in) x 50cm (19.5in).

The device on the present flag - On a mount vert a Centaur with a bow and arrow proper. A badge of Stephen - 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. 7 to 11 Companies were allotted to the 2nd Battalion Coldstream Guards. Hitherto the allocation of Company badges to Battalions in the Coldstream Guards ‘was a most complex matter’. Framed and glazed.
