The Grand Duchy of
Hesse Darmstat

Hesse Darmstat Infantry 1806-1814


The infantry of Hesse Darmstat was organised into three 'brigades' which were the equivalent of regiments in other armies. These brigades consisted of two musketeer and one fusilier (light) battalion. Each of the two musketeer battalions within the brigade was issued with two standards measuring 130cm x 130cm. All of the infantry flags were of a similar design. All flags of the Lieb-Garde brigade had a white field with no crosses. The first flag of the first battalions in both the Leib and Erbprinz brigades had a white field with the corners only divided black and the regimental colour. The other three flags in each case had the complete field in black and the corners in the regimental colour.
