Danckert's flag chart [ca.1700] [dan05] shows the flag of Marseilles (No. 80, Vlag van Marselle) as white with a square blue canton charged with a white cross. 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
