King's Colour

The King's colour of the Royal Indian Navy. A machine-sewn, silk White Ensign with an embroidered garter badge in the centre inscribed 'HONI . SOIT . Q[UI MA]L . Y . PENSE' surrounding the royal monogram 'GRI', a king's crown above. The colour has a silk cord and tassels to attach it to a staff.

The former Royal Indian Marine was reconstituted as the Royal Indian Navy in 1934. New colours were presented on behalf of George V by the Honourable Lord Brabourne, Governor of Bombay on 9 December 1935 on the Cooperage, Bombay.

The White Ensign used for ceremonial purposes and known as the King's Colour was introduced in 1924. They are carried by naval guards of honour and are the only White Ensigns to be charged with a badge.
