Imperial and Royal Standards

If you want German Royal Flags, you want Imperial Standards. Here's a few:
1. The Royal Standard of Prussia and the House of Hohenzollern
2. The Imperial Standard of Wilhelm I
3. The Imperial Standard of Wilhelm II

The third one probably makes for the best fit.

Unfortunately that is not entirely correct.
1. This is the Royal Standard of the King of Prussia (1889-1918).
It is NOT the Standard of the House of Hohenzollern. If the bunting were white instead of red then it would be the Standard of Members of the Royal Prussian Family (1889-1918)
2. This is NOT the Imperial Standard (1871-1889). The bunting for the Imperial Standard would be yellow, the crown is the Imperial Crown and the eagle on the shield is the eagle used during the years 1871-1889.
So this is a mixture which did not have existed in reality.
3. Yes, this is the Imperial Standard from 1889 to 1918.

Regards
Alex R.

A curious note about the German Imperial Crown, a physical copy never existed. It is simply a heraldic crown. There was a design model but no finished one.

Painters of Imperial German Coats of Arms in Documents

Hi all -

I'm a recent joiner, but I had a question about Imperial German diploms, those documents that would be a formal document making one a prince, or a knight etc.

They usually had a painted illustration of the new coat of arms for the recipient, usually on vellum, and signed by the artist.

Is there any good book, website, association, or individual person (english or german) that would be able to help me find out more about such artists, or about the process of how the documents were made?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi, as you mention German - why not look into the German Wikipedia entry - Wappenkünstler - As I can see from the article, many of the most famous German artists designed such stuff - like Dürer, Cranach, Holbein. Link: Wappenkünstler And here you kann find some examples from Dürer: Albrecht Dürer Wappen This ist the man: Albrecht Dürer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
