War of the Austrian Succession and Seven Years War Flags

 I recently picked up the Summerfield book on the Austrian infantry and he proposes that flags from the time of Leopold I may have been used  however I'm not tempted to paint any of these. What's certain there is a lot of unknowns around the flags from this time and flags appear to have been used until they were captured or wore out. So with this in mind here's another pair of flags dating from the reign of Charles VI and likely to have been used in the WAS and early SYW, the coat of arms are dated 1737.
