In the serie of making command structures for all armies, today Russia got a new vignette, containing general, staff officer, standards and a "Trommelbursche" or "Barabanshik", an example of the oftenly seen trend, using adolescent drummer boys as decorative "accessories" in the armies of the 18. century.
Fortunately, the gorgeous Irregular Miniatures produce such a figure, out of the Marlburian range, and now placed between the standards and the officers (Manske Zinnfiguren).
As you can see, I tried to give them a "supra-flag", an outstanding motive for the whole army, which is in difference to the regimental flags. So, I found in russian sources examples of an original zaristic flag of the 18. century:
|the original flag|
It shows the Russian eagle on orange-yellow background. After this, it was easy to build my own flag with a black eagle in the center on the broad, yellow rectangle. On the backside the emblem of the Russian monarchy with the coat-of-arms of all bigger cities. Having flags twice or more, it gives a better visual effect. So, 2 standard bearers were placed, just for outlining the impressive color.
|my own interpretation|
|Mr. general got one of the marvelous heads of Trident.|
