Flags Of Many Shapes

Posted by Accent Banner on Jun 5, 2020 9:20:44 AM

Flags had more varied shapes in earlier times than they do today. Notable were the gonfanon, with its squared tails, the schwenkel, with its extended top strip and the Roman vexillum. 

Some different kind of flag shapes are:

  1. Vexillum
  2. Gonfanon
  3. Gonfalon
  4. Schwenkel
  5. Pennon
  6. Double Pennant
  7. Pennant
  8. Burgee

Interesting Facts: Guess the rank, by the size of a medieval lance pennon varied with the bearer’s rank.
