The individual regiments would display their flags so that all troops could identify their banners during combat. As a result, the “colour” is “trooping.” Around 1400 marching troops, 200 horses and 400 musicians gather in this spectacular show of military precision, horsemanship and fanfare to commemorate the Queen’s official birthday and is a treat for the eyes to watch the troops march with perfect co-ordination.
