Prussian 28mm SYW: IR32 Tresckow

This regiment was raised in 1743 and drew it's recruits largely from newly-conquered Silesia. It was present at the battles of Prague, Moys (where its had very heavy losses, over 50%), Kay (50% losses), Kunersdorf and both battalions were captured when Schweidnitz was seized by Loudon.

My view is that these later raised regiments, which had plainer uniforms, were given flashier flags as some form of 'compensation' and probably because colour combinations were running out.
