 Heraldic Banners   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
A banner of arms is a flag which look the same as the shield of a certain coat of arms, only (usually) square or rectangular instead of shield shaped (the images, charges, on the shield may be changed in form according to this, to fill out the field, which is good heraldic style to do).
So, a monocoloured flag with a shield on it may be visually attractive and conform to the laws of good visibility, but it is not a banner of arms.
These flags not actual banners of arms because the flag appeared first, though from a synchronic point of view there is no difference -- one needs to know the history of each flag and Coat of Arms.
