Lieutenant Governor's Standard

The Lieutenant Governor has a personal flag, called the vice-regal standard, which is flown on his or her vehicle and on the provincial landau (used on ceremonial occasions).  The vice-regal standard may also be flown on a building where the Lieutenant Governor is present.  The vice-regal standard is never used within a building.  It consists of the provincial shield of arms surmounted by the Crown and surrounded by a wreath of ten maple leaves, on a royal blue background.
