Very nice. Will your Danish dragoons have red coats?

At the battle of Halstadt partecipated the Walter (Georg) Dragonregiment that suffeded heavily during that battle.
As far as I know, the uniforms were grey faced blue;
standards: one blue with blue fringes. On it C5 surrounded by 2 palmleaves and the devise in gold "AUT NUNC AUT NUMQUAM (latin) "whether now or never".
other colours identical but with different mottos.
No dragoons had red uniform.

Here a picture (with an intruder:a SYW Austrian Hussar…)

The reason I ask is that I have not been able to find the color of Walter's coats in any articles I have read. Philip Lemke's painting of the Battle of Halmstad shows two companies of Walter's breaking through the Swedish line (as they did in the actual battle) in red coats with a blue standard. The standard color is correct, and I'm inclined to believe that the artist took some care to get the uniform and flag colors right, since, to the extent that they can be seen, the colors the flags and uniforms of other units in the painting seem to be consistent with what modern booklets assign to them.
