San Marino's Council Guard participate in the Captain Regent's swearing-in ceremony as the Captain Regent Escorting Guard in the city of San Marino, capital of San Marino, April 1, 2008.

Because of the policy of neutrality, San Marino, the most ancient republic in Europe, has no regular army but holds a series of guards, such as council guard, gendarme, commando, police etc.

The guards' costumes keep the traditional look which has last for centuries.

The mission of the guards is to take care of the social order and to participate as honor guards in some important ceremony.

Under the 1987 statute the Guard of the Rock are all enrolled as 'Criminal Police Officers' (in addition to their military role) and act to assist the police in investigating major crime.

The uniform of the Guard of the Rock is distinctively red and green in color.
