still working on this buffalo pattern but think I almost have it figured out! Flag designs were used more actively in beadwork after the 1890s as noted in Herbst & Kopp's book The Flag in American Indian Art (1993). Not sure what I'll use this rosette for; it would look nice on a drum stick bag with rolled edge beading and glass crow beads on the fringe! May try the pattern again and see if I can get it right the 4th time, but then I'll have to stop before I start dreaming of buffalos!
