Policy on flag flying

As the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, we routinely fly the Union Flag each day.

During the run-up to the Opening of the Supreme Court, the British Flag Institute recommended that a flag specifically for the Supreme Court be created. This flag will be flown, below the Union Flag, each day on which the Supreme Court is either sitting or delivering a judgment.

The following flags will be flown in addition to the Union Flag taking precedence over the Supreme Court flag:

  • 1 March – The Red Dragon

  • 23 April – St George’s Flag

  • 16 May (Middlesex Day) – The Middlesex Flag

  • The Saturday before Remembrance Sunday in November – The Middlesex Regiment Flag

  • 30 November – The Saltire
