Just wondering why the French and Indian War forum has the anachronistic 1790 French tricolor? Why not the fleur dis lis, or any of the regimental flags of units that served during the conflict? Seeing the tricolor associated with the French and Indian War is like seeing the
Soviet flag used for Imperial Russia.

I think this came up before.
Is it because the flue de lis flag isn’t avalible on a computer program to copy?
It does have the union flag.

What does it take to show a plain all white flag as it seems that the the most common? At that time the blue with 3 fleur-de-lys flag was used on ships. See attachment below.

More than just one flag design doesn't seem all that uncommon with their use depending on various factors. During the War Between the States, for instance, there was a "Confederate flag" representing the Confederacy. Then there was the (now much maligned) "battle flag" which was used in battle since the South's flag was difficult to distinguish from the Stars and Stripes at a distance.
