Royal Standard of Quebec

The Royal Standard of Quebec refers to flags used by Aidan I in his capacity as sovereign of Quebec, and her dominions.

Though universally known as a standard, it is actually a banner of arms comprised of the coat of arms of the House of McGrath. Dominions, and or other realms which do not have their own standard for the monarch will use the Royal Standard of Quebec.

Protocol

The flag must only be raised when the monarch is on the property. The flag may not be hoisted to half-mast, even during the demise of the Crown, because there is always a reigning monarch. It must not be flown upside down, except if the monarchy were to fall. The flag must be folded into thirds, then into quarters. If it is desecrated, it shall be burned.

Use in Quebec

The flag is flown when at the monarch's residencies when the monarch is present. If the owner of a private residency or building requests, the standard can be hoisted if the monarch is present.

It comprises of quarterly 1st Argent three lions passant armed and langued Gules, 2nd Or a clover Azure held in a hand, 3rd Gules an axe proper held in a hand, 4th Argent an antelope Sable horned Or.

Other standards

Prince(ss)es of the royal family receive their own banner when they are born, when they are accepted into the Kingdom, or if a consort is found to the throne. They are variants of the Royal Standard with a three point label with designating symbols.
