Hello folks,
A little help, if l may ask?
I'm currently painting a commission of some 15mm command groups, using the beautifully detailed Battle Honours figures. The customer has given me a figure for Poniatowskis command stand with a standard bearer figure, saying it's the Princes flag. My question is this, what the bloody hell does it look like? I've failed on the google front, and obviously, I want to get it right for the chap. Does anyone have any light to shed on this August piece of silk? Or would it have been a standard (pardon the pun!) cherry flag, with Silver eagle, with ‘Polskie' on it?
Any help much appreciated.

John

I have had a look around and this is the nearest I can find to a flag associated directly to the Prince (it is about a quarter of the way down.
