French Porte-Fanions.... a little help here.

Next up for my French is another line battalion, I've started with the figures left over from my first Victrix box and I'm going to add to that greatcoated figures from the Perry plastic box with bicorne head swaps.

The very first figure is a Grenadier sergeant carrying a porte-fanion.



This is where the 'trouble' starts, I am struggling to find decent info about French Porte-Fanions. Google (that old friend) brings up a few pages but they contradict each other as to the colour and any wording of the porte-fanion.

I appeal to any blog-readers out there to send links or help with porte-fanions.
