Description of the Flag

A white flag bearing a black two-headed eagle, with sword and orb.

From the QDG page at www.mod.uk:

"The regimental cap badge is the Hapsburg double-headed eagle. It was granted to the King's Dragoon Guards by the Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria when he became Colonel in Chief in 1896. It has been worn by the regiment continuously except during World War I, when it was decided to wear the Dragoon Guards cypher instead of the Hapsburg Eagle. A message was sent to the regiment from the Emperor that any KDG captured would be treated as a guest by Franz Joseph himself."
Joe McMillan, 15 June 2005

I should add that the King's Dragoon Guards was one of the two regiments that combined in 1959 to form the 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards, the other being The Queen's Bays (the 2nd Dragoon Guards). The present regiment is the senior cavalry regiment of the line and rejoices in the alternative appellation of The Welsh Cavalry.
