Cuprum,
a few (4-5, I have the regimental numbers somewhere, will come) regiments got the 1919 colours before 1921,
One of them you can see above, at the railway station at Berdychev (a name like that) 1919.
The colour in question show the colour of 5. pp in the field 1920.

Cuprum,
So do I
A curious thing is, that it seems no Pole has ever written especially about the Polish infantry colours in the period, while the cavalry standards are well covered down into details. The information on the infantry has to be found in regimental history books and same information can also often be found on the regimental sites on the internet. The information on the Polish army 1917-1921 is rather impressive, but of course not down into the deatails.

The colour was made of silk.
In July 1919 the regiment was renamed as 41. Suwalski Pułk Piechoty, Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego - 41st  Suwałki Infantry Regiment.  Only 3 regiments got the honour to be surnamed “Marshal Jozef Pilsudski”: The1st Light Horse Regiment (1 Pułk Szwoleżerów), 41st and 66th Infantry Regiments and too the  Cadet Corps No.1. got the surname.
The colour was paid for by the good people of Suwalki, and on 13 September 1919 it was presented in Suwalki to the regiment by Jozef Pilsudski personally.
In April 1919 Pilsudski was appointed head of the regiment, and 25 November 1920 in Molodechno he decorated the colour with the highest Polish military order, the Virtuti Militari. The blue-black bands on the colour represents the Virtuti Militari. On the revers is an amaranth shield, in which is  the Polish white eagle with a closed crown. The text on the colour reads: „Cześć i sława / To wasz cel", "Honor and glory / That's your goal." On the reverse is seen Our Lady of Czestochowa, and the words:„I-mu Suwalskiemu Pułkowi Strzelcow Litewsko-Białoruskiej Dywizyi / Dnia 16 Maja 1919ie. Ziomkowie". "1st Suwalski Rifle Regiment of the Lithuanian-Belarussian Division” and “(Given) On 16 May 1919. (By) Countrymen."
The point is formed as the white eagle in white metal sitting on a brass ball.
On 3 june 1923 the regiment received a new colour of the 1919 pattern.

Знамя было сделано из шелка.
В июле 1919 года полк был переименован в 41 Suwalski Pulk Piechoty, Marszałka Józefa Пилсудского - 41 Сувалский пехотный полк. Только три полка получили право быть наименованными в честь маршала Юзефа Пилсудского: 1-й Легкий Конный полк (1 Pulk Szwoleżerów), 41-й и 66-й пехотные полки, а так же кадетский корпус № 1 тоже получил такую привилегию.
Знамена были приобретены на средства жителей города Сувалки, и 13 сентября 1919 года были вручены в Сувалках полку Юзефом Пилсудским лично.
В апреле 1919 г. Пилсудский был назначен шефом полка, и 25 ноября 1920 года в Молодечно полк получил высший польский военный орден, Virtuti Militari. Сине-черные ленты на знаменах символизируют это награждение. На одной из сторон изображен амарантовый щит, в котором изображен польский белый орел с короной. Текст на знамени гласит: „Cześć i sława / To wasz cel" -  "Честь и слава / Это ваша цель." На обороте размещено изображение Богоматери Ченстоховской, и слова: „I-mu Suwalskiemu Pułkowi Strzelcow Litewsko-Białoruskiej Dywizyi / Dnia 16 Maja 1919ie / Ziomkowie" - "1-му Сувалскому стрелковому полку Литовско-белорусской дивизии" и "16 мая 1919 года", "Земляки".
Навершие в виде польского орла из белого металла, сидящего на латунном шаре.
3 июня 1923 года полк получил новые знамена образца 1919 года.
