Famous Olaf Hoffman's drawing of the Swedish trophied colours are on-line!

Swedish King Karl XI decided in 1677 to make images of all Swedish trophied colours & standards as a sign of great Swedish victories. The work was commissioned to Olof Hoffman. He made about 2.000 of drawings in 1677-1709, which were originally grouped into 20 volumes. They were stored in Armemuseum in Stockholm. Now about a half of them is digitized & available on-line on Digital Museum site (link)!!!!  The current part includes Austrian, Bavarian, Danish, Brandenburg & Danish colours. The East-European colours (Russian, Polish-Lithuanian, Cossacks, etc.) haven't yet digitized...

Enjoy!!!
