Spaniard cockade[edit]

The time-honoured Spaniard cockade was red, like the Austrian one. The Red-and-yellow flag was not the army flag and badge until 1843. Perhaps Joseph I's Spaniard collaborationist army used a red-and-yellow-and-red cockade in the Peninsular War (1808-14), but the Spaniard units that put on fight to Napoleon's army kept on using the traditional red cockade as field badge, edged in white in the case of the 6 Swiss foot regiments on Spaniard payroll. Early in the 18th century the Dutch soldiers in Spaniard pay had used the red cockade along with a green twig. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:49, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

In fact, the red cockade was used up to c.1871.

Royalists_ red. Parliamentary_orange (and sea green in the case of some Protestant Fundamentalist units). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:53, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Great Britain?[edit]

If we're talking modern times, why not "United Kingdom"? Northern Ireland is part of the UK, but not part of GB. (talk) 23:32, 17 June 2008 (UTC)

P.S. One of the references is the encyclopedia [[1]|Nouveau Larousse illustré ]]. The cockades are illustrated at the article under each country. The links to each of the volumes can be found in the Wikipedia article.

Thank you for biringing an attention to the fact that the whole article was unreferenced. In fact it was in this state since as early as 2006. I deleted the whole text. I don't want to even start checking what kind of historical errors it may contain. If you are a fan of the subject, do it correctly. Referencing is the most fundamental policy of English wikipedia, and your irony about my vigilance is gravely misplaced; obviously I was not vigilant enough. - üser:Altenmann >t 02:49, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
