Drapeau de Compagnie

Drapeau de Compagnie

In the 17th century, many infantry regiments had colonel's colours, lieutenant colonel's colours, et major's colours, to mark the three wings of the combat formation. In addition, every company in the regiment carried captain's colours, which differed in the number et placement of captain's devices on these flags. At the Bataille de Edgehill, 23 Octobre 1642, the King's Royal Regiment of Foot Guards reportedly lost eleven of its thirteen flags.

Au debut du 18e siècle, l'armée britannique reduced the number of colours carried by the regiment. By the Guerre de Sept Ans, most line infantry regiments carried only two colours, the King's colours et regimental colours. These changes in the regulation were not fully implemented in the Foot Guards, who have retained company colours even until today. Régiments colonials britanniques, et de la Guerre d'Indépendance Américaine adopted the practise britannique of two colours per regiment. En régiments autrichiens et allemands, les drapeaux de compagnie were called Ordinärfahne ou Kompaniefahne.
