Dear Developers,

I had a strange feeling about the flag
of Maastricht,the one you lads use in the
game. I went to a few archives and libraries
and found some information about the flag
of Maastricht in the 16th and 17th century.
The flag of Maastricht from 1545 till 1549 was
a red flag with a five pointed yellow/golden embroidered star on it.
The flag from 1549-1648 (The age were this game is set in)
was a Yellow-White-Red flag. The flag of Maastricht from 1648 till
now is a red flag with a white star on it. This flag was made in occasion of
the Peace of Münster which made an end of the 80 bloody years of warfare.

The games version also includes the coat of arms of Maastricht (Angel holding
red shield with white star,this coat of arms is made and use in Maastricht around the 1850's)

I hope you are going to change it,I will try to find a picture
or an illustration of the Yellow-White-Red flag.

With friendly regards,

Smissen

It's going to be hard to find a reference picture of a city flag that doesn't exist's
for over 363 years. I spend 3 weeks finding this information listed above. Finding,
translating Diets and old German is not the easiest task in the world :wink:

I used the coat of arms, because that was what I could find.

I gathered a few Resources and the flag
of Maastricht would have to looked like this:


I made this in paint,before adding this to the game,would you lads
make the colours a bit darker?

Umm... That's going to be pretty hard...
As you know, warband flags are shaped like this:

That, and the picture is of very low quality.

Ok,I'll try to look for an alternative.



I ain't sure you have this banner already ingame
but this flag was also common during the war


Just the Dutch flag (Red-White-Blue) with "Pro Patria" (Latin for: For The Fatherland) in the red
stripe of the flag.

Could you also add these two?

Flag Of The Swiss Confederation,the flags were already in use
in the 16th century


Flag Of Zurich, Switzerland (This flag was already in use in the 16-17th century,
mostly by Swiss mercenaries)

It's a bugfix. There's no new content.

I put in the new banners if I am not mistaking, but I will need to look at that...


EDIT: Goodmorning, I have put no textures in the update. I the next one I will include them.

May the lord bless you and welcome you when you arrive of heaven (because you did something for Maastricht).

Amen,
