Guidons are of crimson silk damask, embroidered and fringed with gold. Tassels and cords are of crimson silk and gold cord mixed. They are 3 feet 5 inches flying to the ends of the points of the swallowtails and 2 feet 3 inches deep on the lance, exclusive of the fringe, which is 2 inches in length. The upper and lower corners of the Guidon are rounded off at 12 inches from the end. The point of the slit is equidistant from the upper and lower edges. The width of the slit at the point of the swallowtails is 13 inches.
The Guidon bears, on both sides, the titles of the Regiment, the white horse of Hanover, the unit designation and 21 of the Regiments’ Battle Honours. Units that have more than 9 distinctive engagements to commemorate are permitted laurel branches or wreaths to circle the center title.
The RCH was recently presented its third Guidon since the Royal Montreal Cavalry were presented with a Guidon by his Excellency the Governor General, the earl of Dalhousie on Waterloo Day in 1828.
