Derived from the 6th Century AD Carolingian Empire Province of “Lotharingia”, it would become Lorraine in the 8th Century by The “Treaty of Verdun”. It would fall under control of The Counts of Burgundy. Germany would assumed control later through The Polish War of Succession (18th Century). Eventually re-annexed to France, The Province of Lorraine still retain their Medieval Flag from the 8th Century AD. This was a Yellow Field in entirety, with a Red Engouled Stripe stretching from the Upper Left to Lower Right Canton corners. The Red Stripe featured (3) White Eagles (representing The Carolingian Imperial symbol). The Flag was seen on occasions in several Battles of The early Crusades. These were alluded to have been Archer Forces.
