"Boxer" Flag Sets
These flags were researched from a variety of sources with an eye
towards making them the most authentic ever as yet available for war gaming. Each flag has a translation of it's text printed below it on
the page. All flags are based on surviving examples, and known Boxer
practices. Some text is conjectural, but perfectly in keeping with the
spirit of the movement.
The Boxers were loosely organized into Tuan's of up to
100 members. A given town or even neighborhood might field several Tuan's
as part of the same local cadre or "Sub-Chapter" of the
"Righteous Harmonious Fists" Society. Any number of flags might be carried by
a Tuan, though each should have its own "Home Town" flag, as well as one for
each Leader, plus such mottoes and exhortations as they wish (e.g.
"Kill," "Destroy," and to do so "By Order of the
Emperor" on some of them).
The first three
Sets all represent Peking and towns east and south towards Tientsin. Sets
4 and 5 will represent Tientsin and points west and north towards Peking.
Set 6 is a general collection of small pennants, flags, streamers, and tassels
that could adorn both Boxer and Imperial flag staffs.
Each Set is printed on heavy bond or equivalent for proper
weight and texture. Each flag is double sided with a "gutter"
for folding around a staff. The number of flags in each set varies by
scale. Each flag set is unique in composition, no flags repeating between
Sets. The number of flags in Sets vary dramatically with scale with more
duplicates in the smaller scales.
