Regimental Colours


Colours are presented to a Regiment by the Head of State in recognition of its valour and achievements in various campaigns. The Battle Honours won by the Regiment are depicted on the Colours. They have sanctity of their own and occupy a place of pride in the Regiment. They are treated with utmost reverence by All Ranks.

On 20 March, 1990, the Madras Engineer Group was presented the Colours by his Excellency, the President of India Shri R Venkataraman. It depicts twelve of the Battle Honours won by the Madras Sappers over the past two centuries.
