Unknown Lithuanian GNW infantry colour

Unknown Lithuanian GNW infantry colour
State Trophy Collection, Armemuseum, Stockholm (link)
An other colour of the same regiment
The collection of Armemuseum in Stockholm has a set of at least 6 Lithuanian colours, which belonged to an unidentified infantry regiment. They are light-blue with yellow diagonal cross. The top quarter has an unidentified coat of arms (see at the top). The finial is a lance. The size is about 180x180 cm. The colours are similar to the set of Wisniowecki Foot (link). One of the colours has letters:
- K. i. W. ZW. M. A.
- G. W. L. S. S. X. A.
Evidently these letters mean a name, main titles/estates & offices of the regimental owner. Unfortunately I don't know this coat of arms & will be pleased for any additional info about it.

  1. It seems to be regiment of (nominal) colonel Józef Wandalin Mniszech, who since 1701 was general of Lithuanian artillery. You can see IM on the top of the lance. I don't have full list of Lithuanian army for that period so cannot confirm if such unit exist but it seems to be sensible theory :)

    1. A couple of my friends think the same that the color belongs to Josef Wandalin Mniszech's regiment. But they are not 100% sure
