HC Deb 20 May 1953 vol 515 c2060
33. Mr. Gower

asked the Undersecretary of State for Air why no Welsh emblem appears on any flags of the Royal Air Force although English, Scottish and Irish emblems are incorporated.

Mr. Ward

The only Royal Air Force flags to display national emblems are the Squadron Standards. The present design of these follows heraldic tradition and precedent. My noble Friend is, however, considering whether it would be possible to include a Welsh emblem in the design of future standards.

Mr. Gower

I wish to thank the Minister for that reply.
