- What Flag flew at Fort Loudoun Winchester VA?
- What Flag did the Virginia Regiment use?
When this question is asked, a search of the internet turns up this result. And we post this article to dispute this misleading information.
This link shows 2 FALSE FLAGS. These flags never existed.
From the link:
- Regimental Colour: white field (no mention of the red St. George cross usually appearing on white British regimental colours); centre device consisting of a rose and thistle wreath around the regiment abbreviation “VA Regt” in gold. The Union in the upper left corner.
- King’s Colour: Union with its centre decorated with a rose and thistle wreath around the regiment abbreviation “VA Regt” in gold.
THE FLAG BELOW IS THE FLAG THAT FLEW.
The Union Jack Flag with red field was used on land.
But did the Virginia Regiment use that flag?
- On 12 April 1606, a new flag to represent this regal union between England and Scotland was specified in a royal decree.
- But The Union is still young in 1755. The Battle of Culloden in 1746 proves that.
- Although both shared the same King since 1606, it isn’t until almost 100 years after that Scotland and England Parliaments unite in 1707.
- The flag above is the one we think flew on land. Notice the diagonals are missing because at the time Ireland was not united with Scotland, England, Wales.
