"Ordinanza" or Regimental Flag of Sardinian Swiss Regiment Guibert, mid-18th century


And here's another of the Sardinian flags - shown with the irregularities of the original. Would people prefer exactly symmetrical flags? I rather like the real-world oddities myself.

Please stop!!!!
OK don't really, great to see you doing the Sardinian flags as it means I can stop using the rather iffy images I downloaded.
Great work as ever, when can we expect a template for dce Saxe's imaginary legionaires (well I can hope)
Cheers

I enjoy the historical oddities, too. And we can learn from it.

The detail is much appreciated.

Hi Folks,

Thanks for the comments!

1) :-) More Sardinian flags soon, I hope - rather tied up with doing things to make ready for Xmas at the moment, I'm afraid. I have thought about doing a template for de Saxe's troops but (as Jean-Louis said) those drawings from the posthumous version look very odd indeed and are a little offputting! We'll see, though...

2) I'll stick with the oddities too, FB! :-)

3) Yes, detail is the name of the game here - although finding the right detail amongst the contradictions can be difficult!

More to come soon - thanks again.

Regards,

David.
