Flags – the next step.

Determining which flags were used by particular regiments is somewhat problematic for the Imperial Army. Aside from the Austrian units, the bulk of the Imperial force were a collection of troops raised from the principalities and duchies throughout the Holy Roman Empire.

Much of what I have selected is conjectural, but based on the fashion of the period for banners, flags and standards.

In addition to the images I posted yesterday,  J.Belaubre’s “Les triomphes de Louis XIV” also has interesting depictions.

From the sketches, I made a final drawing for 4 general officer and 8 infantry flags plus 15 cavalry standards was completed..

Later today, the ground colour will be painted in so tomorrow I can include the details.
