You already know the answer  Cheesy
Ask Cuprum, he has any many as you need!
He is just a little slow putting them into 28mm flags.

Dear Steve,

For flags our danish friends of krigsspil.dk have a very good site with lots of flags 75 for the bolsheviks and whites.
here is the direct link:
http://www.krigsspil.dk/download/download_8.html

I think also that our siberian friend has some also in his forum.

I managed to post 3 messages instead of 1!

here is another link with some ready downloale flags for wargaming:

http://gauntletinternational.com/flags/RCWFlagOverview.html

plus posters and markings, (and books ,too)!

As for interventionists:
In case you need any greek flag, pls ask I will be happy to send you a correct flag.

As a generic rule: boslheviks used to have plain red flags. Later they added description of the unit etc. Whites used the czarist tricolour. If they belonged to special formationsor provisional governments they used to have their own banners and standards.

Just trying to assemble as comprehensive list as possible.  The flag meister at 'Flags of War' has said he is interested in producing a range.  I said I'd ask around.

Thanks all

Now...Cuprum....come in Cuprum.........

Ah, The Master!

All Red and all White and all the factions!  It would be good to have a comprehensive archive of all known colours.

Thank you

 Ha-ha! Master?  Wink

 In the words of the character of Soviet children's film fairy tale, "I am not a magician - I'm just learning."

 It's hard.
 Banners on those links that led above colleagues often have little relation to reality. I have quite a large collection of pictures of real flags of this period. But alas - they are not painted. For as long as miniatures are not suitable.
 I was going to paint them - but have no time!

 Here are the banners, while not created for a particular photo, but it could exist in reality. Makhnovists, Red, Poles, Estonians.

Alas. These banners, I had already made, as the source for "serious" historical re-enactment.

 White Banners difficult to reduce to type. They are very different, even from its geography.
