Regimental Colours of the Candanadian Army
#1
Every regiment in the Candanadian Army has its own ceremonial colours, which are banners that were historically carried into battle. Each regiment has two colours - the King's Colour, the design of which is largely standardized and based off the national flag, and the Regimental Colour, the design of which varies from regiment to regiment. The regiment's battle honours are carried on its Regimental Colour.

The following is a collection of colours from across the Candanadian Army, with a brief description of each regiment where necessary and its colour.


THE KING'S OWN EDOFASIAN RIFLES
The KOER is the only surviving regiment from the former Dominion of Edofasia Security Forces, formed in 1967 after Edofasian Unification by amalgamating The Edofasian Light Infantry with The Edofasian Rifles. Due to it's title as "The King's Own", the tri-maple on the King's Colour is defaced with the royal cypher. The KOER is an Oseanian-speaking regiment.

The battle honours on its Regimental Colour are mainly inherited from its two predecessor units and reference the Settlement of Edofasia, the War in Walkure, the First Edofasian Crisis, the Drulluhus Landings, the Battle of Tara and the Tara Insurgencies, the Second Belkhomirian War, the Second Edofasian Crisis, and Kaltach Peacekeeping in Lakedan.

THE CANDANADIAN FOREIGN LEGION
The Candanadian Foreign Legion harkens back to the pre-Confederation kingdoms, which would recruit units of foreign soldiers on a regular basis as long as they swore allegiance to the local monarch. The CFL remains the only unit in the entire CDF to recruit foreign citizens (other than Trefjalli). Despite the name, Candanadian and Trefjalli citizens are still permitted to join the regiment and usually serve as officers. The tri-maple on the King's Colour is much smaller than the royal cypher, as foreign recruits to the CFL swear allegiance not to Candanadium but to the King and the unit itself. The CFL is an Oseanian-Kanadiaans bilingual regiment, and recruits are placed into Oseanian or Kanadiaans companies upon assessment of their linguistic background.

The battle honours on its regimental colour are partly inherited from the various foreign units of pre-Confederation kingdoms and reference the Caskhomirian War, the Settlement of Drulluhus, the Candanadian Civil War, the Jokullheime Raids, the First Edofasian Crisis, the Tara Insurgencies, and the Second Edofasia Crisis. The most prominent battle honour is found on the badge itself, reading "THÜLE" in honour of the Battle of Thüle, in which the unit conducted itself with exceptional distinction.

THE ROYAL HAUTSING LIGHT INFANTRY
The RHLI recruits exclusively from the Province of Hautsing and was created in 1967 with the amalgamation of the Mutterhafen Regiment, the Royal Neuhaven Volunteer Defence Regiment, the New Klettastrand Light Infantry, and the Mutterhafen Oseanian Rifles. The RHLI is therefore unique as the only Hautsing Mandarin-speaking regiment within the Candanadian Army, but it uses Oseanian in an official capacity,

The RHLI's battle honours are all inherited from its predecessors and all volunteer defence units ever raised on Hautsing. They reference the Settlement of Hautsing, the Akarean Labour Revolutions, the Battle of Tara, and the Tara Insurgencies.

THE ROYAL CASKHOMIR REGIMENT
The RCR was created in 1965 following Caskhomir's accession to Confederation from the regiments of the Republic of Caskhomir Army, which were amalgamated into one large Candanadian regiment with the former Caskhomirian regiments becoming companies within. The RCR recruits exclusively within Caskhomir. The King's Colour is based on the Caskhomirian white ensign as opposed to the national flag. The Royal Caskhomir is a Caskaans-Oseanian bilingual regiment.

The regimental battle honours are mainly inherited from the Republic of Caskhomir Army. They reference the Caskhomirian War of Independence, the Caskhomirian War, the Caskhomirian Border War, Peacekeeping in Caskhomir, the Tara Insurgencies, and the Second Edofasian Crisis.

THE ROYAL BELKHOMIR REGIMENT
The RBR was created in 1940 following Belkhomir's annexation. Similarly to the RCR, it was the result of all the regiments of the Belkhomirian Army being transformed into battalions within one regiment in the Candanadian Army. The RBR recruits exclusively in Belkhomir and is a Kanadiaans-speaking regiment. Like the RCR, its King's Colour is based on the Belkhomirian white ensign.

The regimental battle honours are partly inherited from the Belkhomirian Army and feature the First Belkhomirian War, the Caskhomirian War, the Second Belkhomirian War, the Battle of Tara, the Caskhomirian Border War, the Tara Insurgencies, and the Second Edofasian Crisis.
