Thirty Years War Swedish flags

Hi, when I first started making flags a friend asked me to complete a set of flags for the  Swedes and Imperialists, however I was never entirely happy with them so haven't sold them for a couple of years. Recently my interest in the TYW has been resurfaced so I've started 'dolling' a few of my old flags up by getting rid of the conjectural ones and repainting some of the originals. This is the first effort which is a company flag of Baner's Regiment which was a German 'black'  regiment; referring to the flags they carried  in the service of Sweden in the  early 1630's against the army of Tilly.
