Flag of Savoy army of the war of Spanish succession

Posted by Mr. Andrea on 17 Aug 2017, 16:47

Hi all.
With a friend of mine, we are building 15mm French and Savoy armies of the war of Spanish succession (1702-1714), with the dream to soon (couple of years?!) play the siege of Turin (1706).
We are struggling (a lot!) with finding reference to flags of the Savoy army. The internet has plenty of info and material on flags of the various regiments of Louis XIV, but sadly no clue on Savoy flags.
Can anybody give some hints? Any useful website or publication either in English or French?
Thanks a lot

Hi Mr Andrea,

having no idea to what kind of precision you want to go, here is a simple Wiki link to Savoyan heraldry https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armorial_ ... _de_Savoie
Heraldry is always great beause it shows al the links of the ruling families. Using such heradry you can easily come up with some own schèmes which, although not entirely correct, help to identify, are beautiful and remain at least plausible.
At your place I'ld do that

Looking forward to your result
Michael

Information as to which flag to use can be gleaned from this

You could also just buy the bottom set :yeah:

While I have them open I may as well post some other flags of the Spanish Succession.
It should be easy to adjust them for size.
