Livgardets' m/1686 colour. Colonel's colour for household troops during Gustav IV Adolf's reign. Company colour for houshold troops during Gustav IV Adolf's reign First Liv-grenadier Regiment battalion colour during Oscar II's reign

The household troops were next to the Guard (Livgardet) the regiments with the highest status. Unfortunately these regiments had identical colours during the reign of the house of Holstein-Gottorp which make it impossible to determine exactly which regiment the individual colours belonged to.
