  Boer Flag 1898 Boer Flag 1898
Taken from the Terrence Wise and Guido Rosignoli book "Military Flag os the World 1618-1900." This image may only be used for personal use and not for commercial puposes. The text goes on to say, "The Boers did not carry flags into battle, but some units did have flags and one such is illustrated, the flag of the 'Freiwilligen-Korps von Krugersdorp.' The colours of the state troops were virtually the same, but the wagon in the central emblem was slightly different."
 
 
  Dahomey: Standard of King Behazin Dahomey: Standard of King Behazin
Taken from the Terrence Wise and Guido Rosignoli book "Military Flag os the World 1618-1900." This image may only be used for personal use and not for commercial puposes. I suspect that this is not really a flag, but more in the line of a Roman Vexillum. The sort ot thing that is suspended horizontally from a crossbar on the poll, rather than being suspended vertically from the flag poll itself. I have no idea what the reverse would look like, so I just duplicated the obverse (front) and put it on the back. The text goes on to say, "This standard was found on November 18, 1892 at Abomey, the capital of the native kingdom of Dahomey, after the king had escaped from the French expeditionary corps which occupied the capital on the 17th. The title below the main emblem is in Portuguese."
 
 
  Hungarian Royal Banner Hungarian Royal Banner
14th century, I think. Certainly before the Angevins arrive, and the tail suggests that it's after the Mongol unpleasantness.

Trim off the white square at the left and right, leafing a flag with a center of red & white horizontal stripes, with a long red streamer extending from the top.
 
 
  Imperial German Marines Imperial German Marines
Imperial German Marines Taken from the Terrence Wise and Guido Rosignoli book "Military Flag os the World 1618-1900." This image may only be used for personal use and not for commercial puposes. The image should finish up approx. 1 inch square on your flag poll. There is a light grey border that I added to help indicate the size of the flag. There is no border on the flag itself. The text describes this as the standard of the '3rd battalion German Marine infantry.' The battalion number is indicated in Roman numerals inside the wreaths in each corner. In this scale it looks more like a small column than a number, so for gaming purposes this flag is probably OK for all battalions of the Imperial German Marines.... Unless different battalions had standards with different backgroun/field colors on the flags. The 1st and 2nd battalion standards are described as, 'identical except for the battalion numbers." The 3rd battalion was raised in 1898 in Tsingtao in China and was garrisoned in Kiatschau with a home depot in Cuxhaven. It's my interpretation of the text from the book that 'elements of these two battalions' (i.e. the 1st and 2nd) 'served in the Boxer Rebellion, and wars in South West Africa in 1904.
 
 
  King's African Rifles - Colonel's Color 1900-ish King's African Rifles - Colonel's Color 1900-ish
One of, eventually, 3 KAR standards constructed by club members. This one began as a Warflag British Napoleonic colonel's color with the central device removed. Then one of the, several, KAR devices was superimposed in the center.
 
 
  King's African Rifles - Modern Reconstruction King's African Rifles - Modern Reconstruction
Discovered on an Internet website specializing in flags. It's either a modern reconstruction (and by that we mean guess) as to what the standard carried by KAR troops from the area of modern Kenya might have looked like, or it's a real flag used in the early 1950's by KAR units in that same area. I think that the lion is posed 'sergeant' and not 'rampant' because he's looking at the viewer and is not in profile.
 
 
  King's African Rifles - Regimental Color 1900-ish King's African Rifles - Regimental Color 1900-ish
The 2nd of, eventually, 3 KAR standards constructed by club members. This one began as a Warflag British Napoleonic regimental color with the central device removed. Then one of the, several, KAR devices was superimposed in the center.
 
 
  Sign: Dentist Sign: Dentist
The traditional PAINLESS Dentist Sign. Suitable for Wild West buildings from 1870.
 
 
  Sign: Lung Tain General Merchandise Sign: Lung Tain General Merchandise
Lung Tain was an actual Chinese businessman who ran a dry goods empire in Mexico from the 1880's until the Mexican Revolution. There is, of course, no guarantee that any of his signs actually looked like this.
 
 
  Sign: Phelps Dodge Sign: Phelps Dodge
Phelps Dodge was the largest US mining company in the southwest, on both sides of the border, from 1880 to 1920. Again, there is no guarantee that any of their signs looked remotely like this.
 
 
  Sign: Pointing Hand Sign: Pointing Hand
Suitable for pointing out directions in the Wild West from 1870 on.
