Presentation of the Third Guidon to the RCMP, September 8

September 5, 2023
Regina, Saskatchewan

Media Advisory

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police will be presented with a new Guidon on September 8, 2023 at the RCMP Academy, Depot Division.

The Guidon is one of the most recognizable symbols of Royal Canadian Mounted Police's participation in armed conflict alongside the military. It bears the Corps Operational Honours detailing the many campaigns members of the Mounted Police have fought and died in around the world.

The first RCMP Guidon was consecrated in 1935. It was retired in 1973 when a new Guidon was presented in Regina, Saskatchewan, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the RCMP by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, then Honorary Commissioner of the RCMP.

The new Guidon will include the addition of Afghanistan 2003-2014 to the honours, the change of Europe 1939-1945 to Second World War 1939-1945 and the return of the Provost Corps badge.
