Flags on the horizon!

Good evening gents,

So here is a pre-view for our upcoming flags! They will be printed on linen and sold individually. They are ready to order once I receive them (about 1-2 weeks). Here is a list for the flags:

  1. Flag of Karl V. The two columns represent Spain and the Holy Roman Empire.
  2.  Flag of Frundsberg
  3. Heraldry of Hapsburg
  4. Reichsrennfahne (was carried by a officer next to the emperor)
  5. Heraldry of Fugger Augsburg
  6. Heraldry of Nürnberg
  7. Flag with "Andreaskreuz". (represents the sign of Burgundy. The German emperor overtake this heraldry after the marriage between him and the Burgundian lady)
  8. Showing the double-emperor-headed german-eagle. (Some historians say that it represents the emperor and the pope)
  9. Landsknecht-Burgundian Flag showing the "Andreas Kreuz"
  10. City Flag of Nürnberg
  11. Fugger-Flag
  12. City Flag of Memmingen
  13. Reichssturmfahne (representing the Kaiser himself. If the Kaiser wasn't at the battlefield, it represents the highest ranking officer)

Please let me know what you think!



  1. I think they look just great Stephan. If and when I do some Landsknechtes I would be interested in these flags.


  2. Nice banners Stephan !!

    As I plan to begin a Landsknecht project in a few months, I could be interested by your banners and your miniatures.

    Could you print these banners on paper ? Or only on linen ?

    Last question : do you think you'll be in Münich for the Tabletops United this year ? And why not in Nancy in may (Olaf, Helmut, Gabriel and Andreas will come) ?


  3. Hello Stephan

    I have admired your blog for a while. These flags look great, good to see some decent quality flags.

    One minor point;

    Flags 2 & 4 should be reversed, the crossed swords is the Renfahnne and the black and yellow quartered flag is that of Georg Von Frundsberg.



  4. Thank you very much,

    The flags should be avaible next week!

    @Jean-Baptiste: As I print the banners outside of Germany (made in UK) those will only be avaible as linen ones. But: "the flags are attached to a paper sheet to facilitate the printing process, after the flag has been cut from the sheet this can be peeled off. For best results fold the flag in half first, then peel half the flag from the paper backing. Cut the paper backing along the fold and glue the loose part of the flag to the remaining half. This gives a flag that's not too thick that can be folded into any shape, however don't be tempted to pull any loose threads until the glue has dried, these can be snipped off later.

    Alternatively after cutting the flag from the sheet and folding it in half first peel it from the backing paper (if it curls you can iron it flat on the unprinted side) apply glue to half the flag add the pole and fit together; this can be fiddly but gives could results. Shape and again don't be tempted to pull any loose threads, use a sharp pair of scissors to snip these off when the glue has dried.

    Finally snip away any loose threads with a sharp pair of scissors (be careful not to cut yourself ) and paint round the edge ofthe flag to hide any white, then highlight the part of the flag that wraps round the pole to give a professional finish.". So you don't really need paper banners, those will look at least double as good and got a better feeling. They will cost the same as the Artizan or LBM banners.

    I'll be at München for TTU so I can bring you a sheet if you want. If you need it earlier, just let me know!

    @Stuart M:

    Ooops! Thank you very much for your attention, I got things mixed there!
