Colonel's Colours - Bandera Coronela

I've found that other pages in the blog can't contain more than one post. So I decided to keep those pages (just Flags for the moment) to show the definitive ones and put them in normal entries until they are selected. First I'll go with Colonel's Colours.

M'he trobat que les altres pàgines del bloc no poden contenir més d'una entrada. O sigui que he decidit de mantenir-les (només hi ha la de Banderes per ara) per a mostrar les definitives i posar-les a entrades normals fins que siguin seleccionades. Primer aniré a per la Bandera Coronela.

The regimental designation (I Infantry Guards, III Line Infantry, II Light Infantry or the likes) will be inscribed on the scroll in the coat of arms. Also its form is not definitive still.

La designació regimental (I Guàrdies d'Infanteria, III Infanteria de Línia, II Infanteria Lleugera o similars) serà inscrita al pergamí a l'escut d'armes. La seva forma tampoc és definitiva encara.

The nation's coat of arms on the center and cantons on a white background.

Finally, the Saint George's Cross (patron Saint to Catalàunia), the Cross has been sported by Catalan troops since medieval times and it's representative of the Catalan government. Finalment la Creu de Sant Jordi (Sant patró de Catalàunia, la Creu de Sant Jordi ha estat des de l'Edat Mitjana portada per les tropes Catalanes i és representativa del Govern Català).

Please comment on them, help me to decide. I'm not very keen on the last two as they are very similar to 1st Regiment's Colours. Also, the Cross without any devices, although beautiful, could be less representative as the national coat of arms is not present. Moreover the Cross will figure on each and every battalion (regiment) colour, with varying coloured backgrounds and saltires to denote the regimental facings.

Si us plau comenteu sobre les banderes i ajudeu-me a decidir. No estic gens convençut de les dues darreres ja que són molt similars a la Bandera Regimental del 1er Regiment. També cal veure que la Creu de Sant Jordi, sense més elements, encara que formosa, pot ésser menys representativa en no haver-hi l'escut d'armes nacional. Encara més, la Creu apareix a totes i cadascuna de les banderes batallones (regimentals), amb fons i sautors (creus diagonals, com la de Sant Andreu o Santa Eulàlia) de diferents colors segons les divises regimentals.

P.S.: Sorry for the alternated translated texts but I did not want to repeat the flags and making the post excessively large. Disculpeu les traduccions alternades però no volia repetir banderes i fer una entrada massa llarga.

  1. Winner was the second one!

    The cross for the patron Saint of Catalàunia and as a mark of allegiance to the Catalan government institution which pays for the army.

    The Catalan coat of arms for its service and loyalty to the nation beyond anything else. Its presence at the cantons helps keeping this flag distinct to other nation's.

    The scroll over the emblem will bear the regimental numerical designation.

    Finally, note that Battalion colours won't have crosses on them as standard except for a few units, reserving them as standard to all Colonel's colours.
