The author should have had a look into the French regulations of the period before publishing wrong info.

The garde de drapeau (colour guard) was an integral part of the peloton immediatly right of the center of the battalion (4th fusilier peloton before, 2nd fusilier peloton after 1808). So this peloton which included the colour guard, had three files less of firing men than the other pelotons.

Means that in the French army throughout from 1791 to 1830, the flag or eagle was never exactly in the center of the battalion, but always two files right of it.

See for example here, two battalions side by side, before 1808, from a contemporary German translation of the French 1791 regulation):

Hey! That's really useful – especially if your French isn't very good (sometimes easier to fathom meaning from German to English)
