I know I've asked this question before but I cannot find the notes. Can someone point me to a location that has good color photos/drawings of the 1806 Saxon flags for both infantry and cavalry?

Thanks in advance.

Greg

Great Find Rob!

But in both case please be aware that the Colors are shown the wrong way around because

The Cipher was written from left to right towards the flagstaff and the coat of arms away from the flagstaff. It is the same error as GMB did once until he got corrected. :wink:

Best,

So does that mean that the two images need to be switched to opposite sides? That way the cipher would be facing the staff.

Do I have that correct?
