Red Ensign, 1999 -

The white roundel was removed but the Coat of Arms stayed essentially the same. It still shows the sheep, Desire and the same motto. It is just that the dimensions of the badge to the motto have changed from the 1948 flag. The Red Ensign can be flown by civilian ships and craft.
