Can anyone recommend a source of 28mm scale regimental standards for the Danish Army of 1813? To my surprise, GMB does not appear to do any.

The Warflag ones aren't a bad starting point, and the price is right, but many minor details are wrong. The Maverick flags look much more spot on, plus better quality images, and p[rices seem very reasonable as well.

I painted all of my own Danish standards by hand decades ago.

Good sources. Thanks very much.

A second vote for Maverick flags, at the link by "Ironsides". Great product, and great communications from the owner. Fast shipping too.

Are Maverick Flags large enough for 28mm Victrix plastics? I see only 25mm.

It looks like the have an option for "material," and without wavy look, for units where they are holding their colours onside the colour officers' arms.

Oh, good question. Not sure. I use 15mm, and he can size these to the flag pole length (15-18mm), mindful of the hands to finial/eagle gap/width.

By all means email him to see if he can do the same for 25/28mm.

Lovely guy; quick responses.

I have used Maverick's for the Danish Army and some from League of Augsburg for my Norwegians. The Maverick flags can be ordered in several qualitites/types and to Your preferences wrt size, he is very service-minded.
"Augsburg" flags can be found here:

Although the Augsburg ones are from the Great Northern War, and 100 years off, I like the prints very much. Those are the only ones for Norwegian units I have been able to google.
When Norway had to join the union with Sweden in 1814, the Swedes confiscated the latest Danish/Norwegin standards and flags and many of them have been lost to time and fading, so there is little docummentation about the Norwegian standards from the wars of 1808-1814. However, some is available although the official "digimuseum" descriptions are often incomplete, imprecise or totally wrong. See e.g.
link
The description says "2. Trondhjemske Infantry Regiment" (Norwegian). However, it is probably one for Oplandske Inf Reg (originally dark green). The Flag was "adjusted" with C XIII (Swedens King Carl XIII monogram) after 1814.
link
"1. Trondhjemske Inf Reg" With C VII monograms in the corners (Christian VII died in 1808).
link
This is "3. Trondhjemske Inf Reg". Note that the Norwegian regiments inherited flags from the Danish regiments after they were worn and faded. This is ex. "Viborgske Reg" and ex. "Holstenske" (Danish regiments).
link
"Soennenfjeldske Geworbne Inf Reg". (Blue flag with red "tounges". The Golden Lion (state symbol) in the centre is on red background). "Geworbne" meaning "Enlisted". The Norwegian regiments had mostly "National" i.e. conscripted battalions. The National Regiments had until 1810 2 x enlisted grenadier Companies in addition to two-three national battalions. The grenadier coys were sometimes put together in grenadier Battalions in the brigades. The "Geworbne" regiments had the same two grenadier coys, but also a fully enlisted musketeer Battalion in addition to two national battalions. The "Akershus Jaeger Corps" was a fully enlisted jaeger Battalion with 4 coys. Two of the three ski-battalions were enlisted and had three coys. They were very similarly dressed as the jaegers (green tunic, , grey breaches, black webbing and accoutrements).
link
Finally a "Grenadier flag", common among the grenadier coys.

Trygve
