On a cigarette cards album published in 1932 [neu32], Neubecker shows (p. 31, image #97) a Huguenot flag, "reported 1562", in proportions approx. 11:19 plus an embowed end added to the fly. The flag has nine horizontal stripes, alternating horizontal red and yellow. At the hoist a white saltire is superimposed.
