The Ensign

 

The Ensign is an officer of the regiment and is responsible for carrying the Colour, Standard or Trophy. Colours are the most precious thing a regiment owned and losing your trophy was a great dishonour. The Colour did and still does provide a regiment's identity, making you visible on the field and allowing soldiers to find their regiment in the heat of the battle. Each regiment in the English Civil Wars would have had a number of Colours, relating to different companies within the regiment. The current Blew Regiment Standard shows four white plates on a blue background and represents the Third Company of the regiment.
