    I stumbled across a discussion of Russian cavalry flags a couple of years ago on TMP, that led me to:


    Interesting article, but what really piqued my interest was the description of the guidon of the 3d squadron of the L-g. Cossack Regt. – crimson with gold fringe and cords, crimson cross in gold radiance. I.e. exactly like the Leib-squardon’s flag but crimson field instead of white. Viskovatov implies the 3d was identical to the 2d – crimson cross with silver fringe and cords, white cross in silver radiance. Unfortunately, I have no idea why Agafanov proposes this. He references Nikolayev who actually has nothing to say about the 3d squadron’s issue, so dilemma.

    Well at least I got my reference corrected. For some reason I had Nikolayev down as Strukov!?
