The New York State Battle Flag Collection includes 5 printed wool camp colors carried by the 20th Regiment U.S. Colored Troops. Each camp color is in the U.S. national pattern as prescribed in General Order No. 4, Headquarters of the U.S. Army, dated 18 January 1862. All five camp colors include: 34 white stars in 5 horizontal rows (7-7-6-7-7) with the center row of 6 stars indented, the hoist edge folded over to create a sleeve for attachment to the staff, and a narrow machine-stitched hem along the fly.
