A question Sergei.....why are the Imperial Russian feldzeichen colours orange and black?
this color orange (yellow) and black came from the St. George ribbon established by Catherine the Great. It is generally accepted that two orange stripes mean flame, and three black ones - smoke (gunpowder), the color of the cockade also reproduces the colors of the state emblem (black eagle on a gold background).
