The top of the pole had the Royal crest instead of the pike point. These dimensions and pole top were authorised in 1858 along with the order that no battle honour should be placed above the crown.  The Colour is of the regimental facing colour, green. In 1881 the new white facings meant that the  South Wales Borderers were supposed to have the flag of St George as their Regimental Colour but the green Colour remained in use until the 1930s.
