Regimental Flags, Colors and Guidons

Attractive to the historian and the interior decorator, regimental flags with rich histories can be found for a relative bargain, like this 18th-century silk standard from Britain’s 96th Regiment of Foot ($22,400).

Late 19th and Early 20th Century Flags

Interest in pieces from La Belle Époque is on the rise. This German standard

from an 1898 Imperial visit to Ottoman Jerusalem

fetched $10,400.

The Historical­ly Obscure

The relatively unknown story of Britain’s 18thcentur­y Lower Ashton Light Dragoon brigades, plus this guidon’s generally poor condition, translated to a humble $5,000 at auction.
