 There are references to Manchester'​s foot ordering green coats lined in red (2100 in October 1643) and red coats lined in green. Whether one is an error, they wore different colours at different times, or part of the regiment were red-coated and part green-coated is unclear ((//ECW Flags and Colours 1: English Foot//, Stuart Peachey & Les Prince 1990, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525846)). Spring proposes that, since it was a double-sized regiment, one '​battalion'​ wore green lined red and the other red lined green((The Regiments of the Eastern Association Vol. 1, Laurence Spring, Stuart Press 1998 ISBN 1 85804 119 8)).  There are references to Manchester'​s foot ordering green coats lined in red (2100 in October 1643) and red coats lined in green.

 +Manchester requested drums, colours, halberds, partizans and clothes in 1643. Capt Walden also requested a partisan, halberds, ensign, and drums, pikes and corslets, muskets, rests and bandoliers and swords for both officers and soldiers. Whether the regiment actually received armour for their pikemen and musket rests for their musketeers is unknown.

 +Unfortunately there are no known contemporary descriptions of the flags of Manchester'​s regiment. [[http://​www.earlofmanchesters.co.uk/​|The Earl of Manchester'​s Regiment of Foote]] of the Sealed Knot re-enactment society use a conjectural blue flag differenced by white lozenges, inspired by Manchester'​s coat of arms.
