French Italian Wars Flags
Here's my representation of the flags of Louis de Tremouille and Gaston de Foix. Tremouille's flag is taken from the siege of Dijon tapestry a link can be found on Stuart Mulligan's website and Foix's banner is based on a contemporary etching of the battle of Ravenna. Although Foix's arms have a red bull on a yellow field the etching clearly shows the field being darker than the bull, as it was pretty common in Italy to reverse colours I've went with the etching.
