Re: Need help finding image of Louis XIII Royal Musketeers Flag
The date refers to the year the company was established. Has nothing to do with the flag.
As mentioned, no contemporary picture of a flag is known. The caption clearly refers to the whole picture, i.e. flag and man - "Mousquetaire de la Ire compag [ n ] ie en 1622 [meaning: fondée en 1622] ". If Montigny's illustration (published 1772, not 1722 BTW) had meant to represent a flag dated 1622, the musketeer's appearance would have to suit that date as well, which evidently is not the case. :slightly_smiling_face:
