Queen's Colour (bandera coronela) of the Regiment of Chasseurs Isabel II 1841-1844. This regiment was reorganized in 1841 after Queen María Cristina's regency. Previously it was called Regimiento de la Reina Gobernadora (Regiment of the Governing Queen). In 1841 it is granted a Queen's Colour and two Regimental Colours which it keeps until 1844, when the former Colours are reused because of Queen María Cristina's return, making the regiment readopt its previous name.
