Interesting link, but the Great Northern War (1700-1721) started a century before Napoleon's rise to power. link

If you want to read more about Swedish flags I recommend Between the Imperial Eagles (2000) but, off head, these are the very same flags that were used during napoleonic times. At least they look like the part!

Here are the flags used by units involved in 1808 Russo-Swedish War (well, at least the majority of them. The ones that were in the battles we recreated).

What a great service to offer these flags for home printing. Tangos Commercial products do look very similar and are of course superb.


I do like the idea of printing the Napoleonic Era flags with a slight droop already built into the pattern. Everyone does such as a square or rectangle…..and leaves the purchaser to bend to realistic shape.

Good tips on mounting flags, too. I suggest sealing (spray or brush-on sealer) the printed flags on both sides before mounting on pole, and using foil liner.

Foil…….that is clever!

Very clever indeed. Will take a fold the way paper refuses to……


Obviously I was just about to think of that myself…in the next two decades maybe?
