German Field Signs
Imperial and Bavarian troops at the battle of the White Mountain used white symbols, particularly sashes and scarves. The enemy wore sky-blue.
Catholic League soldiers in the 1631 campaign wore a white stripe or ribbon around the arm or, alternatively, green oak leaves or straw.
In May 1632 Wallenstein ordered red symbols in his army, usually neck scarves or sashes. All other colours were forbidden on pain of death.
English troops serving in the Netherlands wore uniforms (Heath, 1997). Most often with red or blue cassocks. Yellow and red facings are also mentioned – as it happens on a blue cassock.
