|New embroidered flags were issued in September 1802 to the Leib Grenadier Garde and the twelve Line Infantry regiments to replace painted flags issued in 1785. The nine cavalry regiments continued to carry their 1785 issue flags up until 1811. As with other European armies, it was the practice to detach the Grenadier companies from the Line regiments and combine them into seperate Grenadier battalions. These Grenadier battalions do not seem to have been issued with individual standards. |
The creation of the Kingdom of Saxony caused new flags to be ordered in November 1807. The new flags were not presented until July 1811, after the army had been reorganised and the 2nd, 6th, 9th and 10th infantry regiments and the carabinier regiment had been disbanded in 1810. Once again, the combined Grenadier battalions were not issued standards. The newly raised regiments of light infantry also did not receive standards.
