Also, During the Civil War, special tactical units and skirmishers were pulled from larger units and not sent into position with the regimental flags displayed.

AS an example. 13th PA Reserve is composed of 10 companies, only one of those companies was the color company the others didn't carry. (Typical in all regiments.) They form up for a line advance, the color company stays back with the balance of the company and 3 or 4 other companies are selected from the regiment to form the task of skirmish line.

So realistically Mr. Raider, it would be more prudent if your unit didn't spawn a flag bearer, as you are a single company out of a 10 company regiment.
