 Symonds noted that Pennyman'​s regiment carried 10 green colours in 1644. The piles wavy are red (Illustration 1). Symonds also added a cryptic note regarding green ensigns with white stars (Illustration 2) but exactly what he meant is unclear ((//ECW Flags and Colours 1: English Foot//, Stuart Peachey & Les Prince 1990, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525846)). ​ Symonds noted that Pennyman'​s regiment carried 10 green colours in 1644.

 +Probably clad in either all red or all blue suits of coats, breeches and montero hats in July 1643 along with the other Royalist foot regiments then in Oxford ((//ECW Flags and Colours 1: English Foot//, Stuart Peachey & Les Prince 1990, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525846)). In 1644 they are mentioned with Fieldings as the white and grey regiments. Whether this refers to coat colours or flags is uncertain. A new clothing issue seems more likely than a change of flag designs.
