The Belfast Gazette, along with The London Gazette and The Edinburgh Gazette, is an official newspaper of the United Kingdom government. It is published by The Stationery Office (TSO), on behalf of Her Majesty's Stationery Office (HMSO) in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The Belfast Gazette was first published on 7 June 1921. Previously the same function was performed for the whole of Ireland by The Dublin Gazette, but with the creation of the Irish Free State, a separate publication was required in Northern Ireland. The Dublin Gazette now continues in the Republic of Ireland as Iris Oifigiúil.[1]

The Belfast Gazette is now published once a week, on Fridays, and it includes official notices relating to matters of state, Parliament, the Northern Ireland Executive, the Northern Ireland Assembly, planning, transport, and public finance, as well as insolvency and bankruptcy notices.
