A flag for The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

HM Queen Elizabeth II has reigned for longer than any other British monarch and celebrates her Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

Flags, of course, will play a big part in the festivities.

There is no official Platinum Jubilee flag so various styles are available – including many that display the official Platinum Jubilee Emblem (shown left).

No specific limitations or regulations apply if you wish to fly a Platinum Jubilee flag.

We suggest that the Jubilee celebration weekend (2-5 June) is a good time to hoist it.

A Platinum Jubilee flag should preferably fly on a flagpole on its own.

If you wish to fly it alongside the Union Flag, the latter takes precedence  – preferably hoisted on a separate pole. If you only have one flagpole, the Union Flag would fly above any Platinum Jubilee flag. However, we would generally discourage this practice for protocol and practical reasons.
