The seamstresses of that city have been very busy over the past few weeks and have turned out a huge number of standards, banners and pennants for the army. The Lutheran pastor has given them appropriate blessings and now Christian IV wishes to present them to his loyal troops.
The commanders ride onto the field to inspect the army.

The commanders of the infantry regiments receive their standards first
The Green-Blue Regiment of Foote, having been "Unit Of The Match" on the army's first outing, are given the honour of parading in front of the whole army.
Christian IV, pleased to note that the cuirassiers (despite initial reluctance) have seen sense and adopted the successful tactic of "tuftiness", presents the tin-cans-on-glue-ingredients with their standards. In a very generous move, he has even given the German mercenary cuirassier regiment a standard, even though they have not yet seen battle.
Hopefully pride in their standards in combination with the magic of tuftiness will provide a much-needed boost to their competence and performance.
The Red Regiment of Cuirassiers (having been the last to break in their first battle, and therefore the most successful) are invited to form up and demonstrate their battle skills.
To provide some encouragement, one of the generals joins them in attacking some captured enemy dragoons, in the open, unsupported and with their gunpowder having been replaced by coal dust.
The artillery, including the newly formed 2nd battery, also received flags. The gunners were slightly worried about having been given 3 flags each - "In Original Hands", "Captured By Enemy" and "Recaptured By Own Troops"....
