This later color is no longer made, but you could add a drop of white to the Night Sky to get a highlight. 18013 «Night Sky» as the base shade color for the Bavarian coats. The Bavarian commission has been a fun project to work on, because I can actually paint Austrian figures, but cover them in a more interesting light blue color, rather than boring Austrian white. Therefore, more extensive research could be necessary to confirm and generalize the findings of this study to other work sites. The Suren figures that I am using have more metal to work with, so it is easier to use the completed flag set that Rick provides.
