Royal Standard 1835-1914

Königsstandarte

[Royal Standard 1835-1914 (Bavaria, Germany)] 1:1
by Theo van der Zalm modified by Santiago Dotor
Flag adopted 1835, abolished 24th February 1914

Square blue-white lozengy of many pieces with greater arms at the center. Illustrated National Geographic 1917, p. 367, no. 997.

Norman Martin, August 1998

I think this standard appears in National Geographic 1917 simply because news of the new 1914 standard did not reach America in the war. As such the standard is correct. It is shown in Ströhl 1897.

Standard of the Princes and Princesses of the Royal House 1835-1914

Standarte der Prinzen und Prinzessinen des Königlichen Hauses

[Standard of the Princes and Princesses of the Royal House 1835-1914 (Bavaria, Germany)] 1:1
by Theo van der Zalm modified by Santiago Dotor
Flag adopted 1835, abolished 24th February 1914

Ströhl 1897 gives a standard for the royal princes and princesses, similar to the royal standard with a simpler version of the arms.

Standard for Other Members of the Royal House, late 19th century

Standarte des Königlichen Hauses

[Standard for Other Members of the Royal House, late 19th century (Bavaria, Germany)] ~3:4 | stripes 1+2+1
by Theo van der Zalm modified by Santiago Dotor

Horizontal triband: blue-white-blue. Ratio of stripes 1:2:1. In the center the arms [see also the national flag c.1870].

Norman Martin, August 1998

This standard is shown in Siebmacher 1878. It is not the standard of the king then Louis II but of the royal house.

Theo van der Zalm, 16 June 2001

If there was a 1835-1914 standard for the princes and princesses, who used this royal family standard in 1878?

Santiago Dotor, 22 June 2001

Good question. I suppose the type with lozenges (Rauten) and Siebmacher's standard for the royal house were not used simultaneously. Another possibility is, that they had not altogether the same function. Sovereigns sometimes used and use different flags on land, on water, on palaces or on coaches and motorcars. And flags used are not always official. Sometimes they can be made just for special occasions.

Personal Standard of King Louis II c.1864-1886

Standarte des Königs Ludwig II

[Personal Standard of King Louis II c.1864-1886 (Bavaria, Germany)] ~9:10
by Theo van der Zalm and Jorge Candeias, modified by Santiago Dotor

Blue-white lozengy of 20 pieces (possibly in error as to number of pieces). In the center the crowned monogram L plus small Roman numeral 2 [for Ludwig II].

Norman Martin, August 1998

This simple yet beautiful standard appears in Siebmacher 1878 and Neubecker 1932.
