An example of the Royalist LDV's in North Yorkshire.This is the flag of the Royal Ryedale Defence Volunteers.
It carries the Union Flag with Crown Imperial on a red field (which is one of the Yorkshire Flag colours,not the nasty pale blue fake one you see in places today.The other colour is black based on the the Royal Battle Standard of Richard III)where sits the White Rose & White Boar of the House of York.

The boar however has an even older history in Yorkshire as was used as Legion symbol by the Roman Army.It and the Bull are both linked to the city of York through the 6th & 9th Legion's.
