Danckert's flag chart [ca.1700] [dan05] shows as flag #80 the 'Vlag van Marselle' - Flag of Marseilles.
The flag has a white field with a white cross in a square blue canton. The cross has equal arms, which touch the upper and left edges of the flag. The canton is separated from the main white field by a thin black fimbriation.
This flag is rather odd, since the flag of Marseilles has been known for centuries to be a blue cross on a white field
