A national champion cycling jersey is a cycling jersey awarded to the winning riders of each event at the national cycling championships sponsored by the national governing body and recognized by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI). The national champion cycling jersey is often colored and styled after that country's national flag, or else utilises the country's national colours.

Riders are authorized to wear an awarded national champion cycling jersey until next year's national championship. Afterwards, past champions may wear the national colors around the neckline and arm bands.
