I have posted an extensive article about the flags used in the Austrian army during the WAS. Some units used the old flags from the Charles VI era and before.



The above picture shows some Minden Miniatures painted as the Deutschmeister regiment with flags from the Charles VI era, but employed during the WAS.

Great stuff, DAF. Nice flags.

Just out of curiosity, Fritz.
What would happen to a Regiment that did not remove Imperial paraphernalia from its flags, in contravention of The Law? grin
Would they be considered in rebellion? Would they get an automatic -1 on morale rolls?

Van Owen: my guess is that regiments continued to use the old "imperial " flags until the wore out, Any new flags issued during this period would not have the Imperial colors or emblems.
