BRITS will get their iconic dark blue passports in a matter of weeks after HOAR campaigned tirelessly to reinstate the iconic travel documents.

Just months after the Brexit referendum in 2016 we demanded a pledge from the government to bring back the passport.

After gaining support from the Great British public, ministers and celebrities HOAR got the government commitment to bring them back following the True Blue campaign.

Even after delays to the Brexit process, the campaign continued until Priti Patel announced the new booklet, complete with gold emblem free of any EU symbols and embossed floral emblems of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The return of the blue passport was agreed in 2017.

Brexiteers saw the move as highly symbolic.

Cabinet minister Jacob Rees-Mogg called it the cherry on the icing.

Blue was first used for the cover of the British passport in 1921, but the design changed in 1988 after the UK joined the European Economic Community and burgundy was chosen as the common colour.
