In this case, the banner is more perceptually salient than the large text and small text banners (in that it is more different from other items on the page) but it also resembles advertising banners, and therefore may be more likely to be ignored for that reason.
Although the non-ad banners did not seem to make the selection more efficient, it is possible that the banner format and grouping variables could influence whether the banners were seen at all.
The non-ad banners that were composed of blue text were not any more helpful than those which looked more like advertisements, although the participants' recall of seeing these banners indicate that there may have been a slight advantage for the text "banners" over the more graphical ones (see Table 1).

 Appendix - The Symbols of Anarchy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
French Anarchists carried three red flags at the funeral of Louise Michel's mother in 1885 as well as at her own funeral in January 1905.
Thus the red flag was increasingly associated with the authoritarian and statist (and increasingly reformist) side of the socialist movement.
Given that the fl and red flags were associated with the Lyon's uprising of 1831, perhaps the development of the red-and-fl flag is not too unusual.

 The Struggle Within the CCP and China’s Situation
Although the Red Guard movement is a kind of mass movement--in which a majority of participants are students -- the movement was organized in a hurry and is essentially a loyalist movement, the central task of which is to protect Mao’s personal power and the absolute dominating position of his thought.
In practice, the Red Guards have worked hand in hand with Lin Piao’s army in an effort to overthrow the reformists who occupy many different positions in the local governments as well as all the other opposition elements who are in positions of authority.
In the course of the struggle, therefore, they are forced “to oppose red banners with red banners.” As a result, they are not in a position to show their true political colors in order to win over the masses and wage an effective struggle for power.

Under pressure from orthodox Leninists within the party apparatus, with the failure of the "Hundred Flower Movement", Mao concluded it was impossible to create a socialist consciousness through a gradual improvement of material living conditions; that consciousness and reality had to be changed concurrently and in conjunction through gigantic new efforts at mobilization.
This led to the Anti-Rightist Campaign of 1957-58, followed by "Three Red Banners" in the spring of 1958, initiating simultaneous development of industry and agriculture through the use of both modern and traditional methods of production under the "General Line of Building Socialism".
