The flag features painted inscriptions in gold, shadowed in red, along the top and bottom, and a red painted shield in the center framed with a gold painted border. The shield includes, in part, the regiment’s numeric designation in gold shadowed in crimson. “N.Y.S.V.” and “CAVALRY.” are in mirror image on the reverse while the numeric designation reads left to right on the reverse.(2008.0006)
