Infantry Regimental Colours 1704 - Part II

The colours illustrated belong to the 1st Battalions of the then three line regiments. The 2nd Battalions' colours were of the same pattern, but with the partition of the field reversed. At this time, only one colour was carried by each line battalion.
The colours of the Garde regiment were distinctive and followed a different pattern - which shall be shown later.
