It is black, with a white border, crossed swords on the flap, and a skull and crossbones on the body. His sash is also black with a white border; it has a Maltese cross and a seven(?)-pointed star on it, plus a rosette on the shoulder. His sword belt is black, with a rectangular buckle; a sword hangs from the belt at the man's left side. His gauntlets are white, with a cross visible on the cuff of the left gauntlet. His right arm is crossed over his chest, and he is holding a chapeau-de-bras in that hand. The chapeau-de-bras is black, with black stripes and feathers.
