This page is devoted to the flags, standards and guidons of various Napoleonic armies. There are so many websites offering flags these days, but they all seem to cover the same nations and miss out others -usually the ones that are either un-profitable in terms of the amount of work put in for the number of players likely to want those flags, or simply because too little seems to be known about them to produce decent facsimiles. Most aspects, as I said, are adequately covered elsewhere
These little known aspects aren't necessarily for the lesser know nations but for aspects of major players. For instance, little is available covering the whole range of British flags in terms of regular infantry, cavalry and especially the yeomanry, militia, volunteers, associations and fencibles. Once you start delving into the subject, it's amazing just how much information there is out there. There seem to be, for instance, flags available for the regiments that fought in the Peninsula and in the 100 days campaign, but few of those who were in neither. Like wise, little is known about the flags of the numerous landwehr, volunteer, Insurrectio and freikorps of the Austrian KuK or the opolchenie and irregular forces of Imperial Russia. I hope to cover these and others on this page.
Many military units - most, so I believe- despite having no "official" standard or colours, carried "flags" of an unofficial nature as a matter of efficiency -requiring a symbol upon which to rally- or as a symbol of local pride, to indicate that that particular town or region was "doing it's bit" in the nations time of need. Some of these, if you take the British auxiliaries for example, were far more elaborate than their regular (and regulated) counterparts and were often created by officer's' wives, proud town corporations etc. and as such were highly individual and meaningful to the unit to which they belonged. I believe that this urge to have a symbol around which corps pride could be accrued and rallying -even if it was only for camp purposes, was so strong that even the "battalions of detachments" formed by Wellington carried them -though only one each, just to differentiate them from regimental "colours." I shall add more thoughts on this subject as the page expands. All the flags on here are as accurate as the information I have found allows. They have been drawn using Paint.net
