Flags for Schleswig - Holstein - Gottorf infantry units?

Post by Bfh50 » Sun Nov 23, 2014 1:51 am

I am looking for flags for any of the infantry regiments assigned to the Schleswig - Holstein - Gottorp (or Gottorf) force allied with the Swedes during the Great Northern war. I found good information about them on following web site:

http://www.wfgamers.org.uk/resources/C18/gnw.htm#gott

However, this only provided pictures of some of the regiment uniforms, but nothing about the flags that went along with any of the regiments.

Ideally I would like the name of an infantry regiment in the Schleswig - Holstein - Gottorf force and the flag to go along with them.

Any help is appreciated.
