What did the Napoleonic Russian national flag look like? Say a flag flying about a fort? I have only seen the Regt. flags.

Dark Blue St. Andrew's Cross on a White Field was the Naval Ensign, which would work.

Two headed eagle on a yellow background is the one I think.

It really depends upon the unit who Garrisoned the fortress, no generic flags were issued.

a great E-book discussing this

Thanks. I think I will go with the Imperial Standard (Yellow flag with black two headed eagle).
