The cockade used during WW1 to represent Duchy of Saxony was green, white and green.
The Duchy of Saxony (Low German: Hartogdom Sassen, German: Herzogtum Sachsen) was originally the area settled by the Saxons in the late Early Middle Ages, when they were subdued by Charlemagne during the Saxon Wars from 772 and incorporated into the Carolingian Empire (Francia) by 804.
Upon the 843 Treaty of Verdun, Saxony was one of the five German stem duchies of East Francia; Duke Henry the Fowler was elected German king in 919.
This cockade was worn on the centre of the Feldmütze band below the Reich's cockade. This version was for enlisted ranks use and is one of several versions produced. It is attached to the cap using cotton thread.
