About the Flag

Lieutenant-Governor of the Isle of Man, adopted 1999.
Pascal Vagnat, 25 September 1998

In Album des Pavillons (2000), the Lieutenant-Governor's flag is depicted, this being of the usual format with the Triskelion on a red shield positioned in the centre of a laurel garland which defaces the British Union Flag. Rudi Longueville's book "Badges of the British Commonwealth" 1998 edition, is in agreement with Album, and has the Triskelion on a shield and gives us an adoption date of 1968. In the same publication, a different form of Triskelion is shown with the legs running in a clockwise direction and matching the illustration in "The international flag book in colour" by Christian Fogd Pedersen 1970. No adoption date is given for this version but does give us an abolition at 1968! This flag would surely have changed in 1999 to suit the new-style Governor's Union with a gold ring underneath the laurel garland.

In the Observers book of flags (1966), the shield is more traditional in appearance and is more squared-off than the version from 1968.
