With DrawGraphics it's easy.

Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"]

Draw2D[
    {Red, DrawVectorField[{y, -x}, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}],
      Green, DrawVectorField[{x, y}, {x, 0, 1}, {y, 0, 1}]},
    AspectRatio -> Automatic,
    Background -> Linen,
    ImageSize -> 450];

Dear Masters

I would like to plot two vector fields in the same graph. However I
need the arrows of the two fields to have different colors. Is there a
sneaky way to do this? I tried the following, but in the third plot
all arrows become red.

p1 :=  PlotVectorField[{y,-x},{x,0,1},{y,0,1}, DefaultColor -> RGBColor[1,
0, 0]];
p2 :=  PlotVectorField[{x,y},{x,0,1},{y,0,1}, DefaultColor -> RGBColor[0, 1,
0]] ;
Show[p1,p2]

                Thanks in advance

                        Niels

PS: I am using a slightly old version, so I cannot apply PlotVectorField to
a list
