Flags in the HGM & other heraldry

Currently writing a Wiki page specifically on Austrian flags during our period, just to save writing it over and over! I came across this interesting world heraldry site, which has drawings of many of the flags and other objects held in the HGM (Vienna Army Museum) http://www.ngw.nl/heraldrywiki/index.ph ... eresmuseum including the Austrian FML uniform worn by Napoleon as he headed through southern France on his way to Elba.

HGM getting with it by Twitter. So, here are some details of a 1792 pattern flag and its pole (took a bit of painting) from their feed https://twitter.com/HGM_Wien/status/768346424832589824
