The NYS Battle Flag Collection
includes two flank markers carried by the 4th Regiment NY Volunteer Infantry.
Both flags feature painted inscriptions in gold, shadowed in red, along
the top and bottom and a red painted oval shield edged with a gold painted
border in the center with the regiment's numeric designation painted
in gold with shadow effects. The inscriptions along the top and bottom
are in mirror image on the reverse while the numeric designation reads
left to right on the reverse.
