This is the standard Royal Standard but it is "differenced" by the white bar with two St George crosses and the Tudor rose.

It was one of many flags made in New Zealand for the visit of Princess Elizabeth which was to take place in 1952. It was never used as the original tour was cut short by the death of King George VI and in 1953 she visited as Queen Elizabeth II.
