[AmRevolution] Flag Puzzle

In Richardson's "Standards and Colors of the American Revolution" is a yellow flag of a Rhode Island Artillery Unit. There is a puzzle:
The flag is silk-showing a possible Am Rev basis
Yet
The Painted devices are those of a painter who was active in the 1820's!
Were silk military flags in use after 1800?
