View Full Version : Missing flag on the Alligator

I just received this miniature in the mail. I noticed that the national flag was blank instead of one of the French flags found on the other ships. Is this intentional?

The mini should have a white flag.

This is the flag of the Bourbons, the French kings before the French Revolution.

A stripe of blue and red should fix the "problem".

The Commerce de Bordeaux has a white flag, too.

Thanks for the info. Time to get out the gold paint and make teeny tiny fleur-de-lis!

Don't do Fleur-de-lis Mick.
The National flag was plain White as depicted.

I have to be careful at work with comments about the French! , one of our Radiographers is from Montreal, though he is not one of the French population there!
