Tunisian Military flags in The Army Museum in Paris

The Army Museum in Paris displays four flags taken from the Tunisian Army in Sfax in 1881, during the French intervention that preceded the establishment of the protectorate. All of them are mainly made of three plain horizontal stripes. Their dimensions are (110-115 cm) x (175-187 cm), given an approximate proportion of 3:5. The hoist, of 255 cm height, is painted with white, grey, green and red spirals. The finial is made of a brass socket topped with a crescent pointing upwards. The precise use of these flags is unknown but they are similar in design to flags used at the same period in Algeria and Morocco. Source: Pierre Charri, Les emblemes tunisiens.
