General Post Office Blue Ensign

The General Post Office Blue Ensign. A Blue Ensign defaced with the Father Time badge of the Post Office. The printed badge is applied to a machine-sewn ensign made in synthetic/wool bunting. It has a rope and toggle attached. The figure of Time holds a scythe and an hourglass which is being shattered by a thunder bolt suggesting that the Post Office provided a speedy service.

The ensign was used by government owned Royal Mail vessels from 1884. The ensign's use seems to have been discontinued some time after World War II.

Original size: 965 mm x 1854 mm
