any help for flags of Charles ii army update

Post by lee sherman » Wed Dec 16, 2015 9:43 pm

I have recently just finished my 28mm 1672 Garde Francaise Regiment, Garde Suisse Regiment and next up is going to be Charles II 1672 Foot Guards Regiment, the uniforms I have no problem with just the flags!!

I found that the flags were usual St George Cross in Crimson with various Royal emblems for different Cpts maybe this is as in rose, port cullis, dragon etc etc but the colonels says

White field with the Royal Monogram/Cypher of Charles II crowned so I have 3 Types of Charles II monogram does any one know which it may be??? I make all my own flags from either cutting images and symbols from pictures on the net or doing them complete from scratch

thanks
