From the German Wikipedia, another picture of the Infantry Colour, here you also can see the Eagle on Swastika Fininal:

If you note, on the photograph there is only a Swastika in the top left corner. While on the images you have it in all four corners.

You are right Jens, which makes it strange, as the Colour should have Swastikas in all four Corners.

From the Book Flags of the Third Reich 1: Wehrmacht by Brian L. Davis & Malcom McGregor some pictures showing the possitions of the Swastikas:

A new Colour is beeing manufactured. It should be noted tha no Colours was pesented during the Days of the Weimar Republic, the Colours and Standards that remained from the Old Imperial Army continued to be used. On 16 March 1936 it was announced that new Unit Colours and Standards should be presented. The first presentation took plance on 21 april 1936 to Units of the New Luftwaffe.

Wounder then if there is a reason for the difference, or if it's just casual?

It is also of interest there are no breast eagle on the uniforms !
Is this a foreign regiment in the service of the Whermacht ? This could account for the lack of the full complement of swastikas.
