British India was the areas of Southern Asia that were for hundreds of years under the influence of the English and later the British. From the 1600s to 1858, those areas were run by the East India Company. From 1858 to 1947, they were the British Raj. Some areas were under the direct rule of the Governor-General of India. He was appointed by the Government of the United Kingdom in London, and he was also called a viceroy since he represented the British monarch. British Imperialists Indians too had the symbols that were used to represent the colonial British Indian people proper and abroad to represent the country and its people, during most of the early half of the 20th Century respectively.

British India included the regions of the present-day Bangladesh, Republic of India, Burma and Pakistan (1858–13th August 1947).
