On Sunday June 2, 1991, an important occasion in the history of the RCMP took place at the Training Academy, in Regina, Saskatchewan. His Excellency the Governor General, the Right Honourable Raymon J. Hnatyshyn, presented the new RCMP Corps Ensign to Commissioner Norman Inkster. The flag was a new symbol for the Force, to be proudly displayed across Canada.
At that same ceremony, Commissioner Inkster presented divisional ensigns to the provincial Lieutenant-Governors and Commissioners of Canada's two Territories.
The Manitoba RCMP's ensign has two images on it. In the top left corner, in what's called the canton, is an image of the RCMP badge. A bison, the symbol of the Province is in the bottom right corner. The bison is also used in the Arms and the flag of the Province. The colours of the ensign are yellow, red and royal blue, which are the RCMP's official regimental colours.
