The New York State Battle Flag Collection includes two silk flank markers carried by the 162nd Regiment New York Volunteer Infantry. Both flank markers feature the unit's numeric designation, "162nd Rgt./N.Y.S.V.," embroidered to the center. The white flank marker is embroidered with purple and blue silk yarn while the blue flank marker includes tan colored yarns. The white flank marker is discolored mainly from exposure to light.

See the 162nd Infantry Regiment History Page for more information about the unit.
