Cederström notes in his page with corrections that some additional dragoon colours are located in Copenhagen (Töjhusmuseum). Specifically a chequered blue and yellow colour made by flag cloth from the end of the 17th century, a light blue colour made by damask from Karl XII's reign and two yellow colours made by wool from the beginning of the 18th century or the end of the 17th century.
