GMB Flags ― Prussian Napoleonic

NOTE: All items $7.00 each.

PR82 to PR84 have flags for two Grenadier battalions.

In 1814 the Grenadier battalions were formed into two "Garde Grenadier" Regiments:

- Leib Grenadier Battalion / 1st Battalion Kaiser Alexander Garde Grenadier Regiment
- 1st East Prussian Grenadiers / 2nd Battalion Kaiser Alexander Garde Grenadier Regiment
- 2nd East Prussian Grenadiers / Fusilier Battalion Kaiser Alexander Garde Grenadier Regiment
- Pomeranian Grenadiers / 1st Battalion Kaiser Franz Garde Grenadier Regiment
- West Prussian Grenadiers / 2nd Battalion Kaiser Franz Garde Grenadier Regiment
- Silesian Grenadiers / Fusilier Battalion Kaiser Franz Garde Grenadier Regiment

Not much is known of the flags carried by the Landwehr and Reserve battalions. There was no official issue to these units, but some, if not all, carried a flag with either the cross or eagle device in the centre; usually accompanied by a patriotic slogan.

It is believed that the Silesian units used their state crest. The assumption is that the Pommeranians and Brandenburgers would have followed this practice. The flags would have been painted or even embroidered by wives and mothers and often presented to the troops by the Mayors of their home towns. There were no regulations to govern them, so each flag would have been an interpretation of the eagle or cross of Prussia.
