Their wikipedia page has a photo of a soldier posing with the United States flag. From what I can see, it looks like a standard flag. I've never seen their state colors, though.

Thanks for the reply. I have found this that talks about the Regimental flag

I expect the Regimental colors looked like many other NY units'.

Here's the 5th NY's, for example, which sounds similar to your description.

It's from the collection of the NY State Military Museum. They have many flags, but unfortunately none for the 23rd Infantry.

Good hunting!
