The Zulu time zone (Z) is the same zone as the Greenwich or Prime Meridian with no offset written as UTC +0:00. This means that it exactly the same as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

The US Military, Chinese Military, and several others have adopted a unique list of names for the time zones across the world. The names use the NATO phonetic alphabet which calls for the 26 letters of the alphabet to be designated by easily recognizable words. The Zulu time zone is one of these.

The Zulu time zone is primarily used in aviation and military operations.

Other time zones that include the same offset are Azores Summer Time (AZOST), Eastern Greenland Summer Time (EGST), Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), Western European Time (WET), and Western Sahara Standard Time (WT).
