NYW Flags - Danish Foot Guards 1690



Here's my take on the flags for the Danish Footguards during the NYW, the flag can be seen flying high, in one of my previous posts here. I've leaned heavily on the flags pictured in "The Danish Army 1699-1715" by Sapherson, for these two flags, but I've not used the Order of the Elephant ribbons or the Danish Great State Shield,  that was used on their flag after 1693. Instead I've used the C5 cypher of the Danish king Christian V.

  10. Nice work Ray. I know it's been asked before, but I'm too lazy to search for it. What do you use to make your flags? I would use GIMP or Inkscape, just curious what you use.

  17. Hi Ray,

    I must admit I'm a lurker of your site for long time but don't have a Blogger account to write comments. I know you make these beautiful and accurate flags for figures. I do have a humble suggestion, IMHO I think it would be cool if you add a soldier reference to your flag design so we newbie Nap fans know what the unit like.

    Warm regards,

    Ben AKA VS
