Swiss of the Great Italian Wars
« on: May 29, 2022, 06:44:14 AM »
Hello All,

I know things were far from uniform in the 16th century but I was hoping someone could point me to or provide a colour guide for the Swiss Cantons involved in Italy during the Italian Wars period. 

Did each Canton have a particular 'popular' colour scheme or just colours that they prefered?

Also Swiss flags, my Google-foo is failing me lol

Here are some Swiss flags that Lancashire Games kindly makes available as a free download.  For Swiss in French service a white cross of St.Denis features, Pete's Flags does nice ones.


This unit of Swiss in French service is painted in accordance with what we know for such troops.
