Union Jack with insignia like this was uncommon, the more widespread apply appears to have copied the army practice, of putting a crowned circle within the centre of the flag, In the centre of this circle was both the battalion number (in roman numerals) or the textual content “Ulster Volunteer Force” On the edge was the text reading the regiment’s title and in some circumstances the battalion quantity.
