Description of the flag

This morning, on BBC Television Channel 1 (BBC 1), on their news program 'News in the North West', there was a report that featured a brief glimpse of the flag of the British Prison Service: on a white rectangle a smaller blue rectangle so arranged as to provide wide white margins. Within the blue rectangle there is a representation of a castle in white (presumably Lancaster Castle, a medieval structure which is still used in part as an active prison). Beneath the castle the following
words are written in white block letters in two lines: 'H. M. PRISON SERVICE.'
Ron Lahav, 7 September 2004

A small white panel (charged with a blue St Edward's crown?) is placed above the inscription.
