He's an advertiser here, so no worries.
They're downloadable ZIP files.
Highlights are flags for the Pennsylvania/Philadelphia Associators. Jordan is great at graphics. Some are from a print showing a muster of Associators to counter the Paxton Boys.
More are from descriptions in the Pennsylvania Gazette.
He gives you a choice of red or blue fields, and whether you wish to have the Union or not. Great deal, even if you're only giving Colours to 3 battalions.
ALL Hessian flags are given.
He also has:
The bizarre speculative British Legion flag.
Anspach
French
Many obscure AWI Continental and militia flags.
Many one-off are free. If more than one is included, why you pay a nominal fee.

He covers many ECW and obscure German Napoleonic states.
Not to mention paper soldiers.

The best thing is that once you get the file, you can print as many as you need, whatever scale you want, and on whatever paper you prefer.

Nice find. I never thought of Wargames Vault for flags.

You can also find some plausible FIW and KPW flags.

I'm thinking of painting some FIW Provincials brown and fighting the Paxton Boys under those Associator flags.

Jordan does great research. I like his "Well, you gotta have flags!" attitude.

John,

Thanks for sharing but did think my eyesight was going a bit funny when I first saw Colonel Butler's flag: link

It's from a surviving relic. If you think that the St Andrew Cross is "off" because the arms don't line up in the center… You're right. They don't.
The surviving relic is just as skewed. It's a thin hand sewn piece. The arms don't line up.
The relic was "discovered" in a closet at West Point. It has a legend associated with it that it was captured during the War of 1812. There is enough information to assume that Col Butler MIGHT have used it at Wyoming. That seems unlikely, just because a ranging company has no use for a flag. But who's going to tell a headstrong Tory he can't have a flag?

I've been asked by a friend to run a Wyoming Massacre game for him when he returns from deployment. Col Butler will have his flag.
