This is a very rare flag.

Standard of the 2nd Infantry Regiment of the Grand Duchy of Kleve-Berg ( 1807 pattern ). This flag was designed by Marshal Murat himself.

Remnants of a tent used on campaign by Napoleon Bonaparte are in safekeeping at Esphigmenou Monastery. Postwar French governments, among others, have asked to buy these priceless relics of French history, at any price, but the Mount Athos authorities have always refused.
