The first blue British passports for nearly 30 years will be issued next month, the Home Office has said.
BBC reports Blue passports were used in the UK from 1921 until 1988, when members of the then European Economic Community agreed to harmonise designs.
Sky News reports Home Secretary Priti Patel said: “Leaving the EU gave us a unique opportunity to restore our national identity and forge a new path in the world.
“By returning to the iconic blue and gold design, the British passport will once again be entwined with our national identity and I cannot wait to travel on one.”
