Whether it is the famous three lions of King Richard or the Stars and Stripes, historical flags have represented honor and show allegiance and pride. Flags, banners, standards, call them what you will, they represent countries, militaries, identify territories, honor royalty, and can act as warnings. However, there are some that were infamous as well. Pirates and Privateers of all sorts made flags to instill fear, the most famous being the skull and crossbones

In antiquity, standards were used in warfare to identify the various factions fighting and reigned over a victorious battlefield. Examples include the eagle carried by the Roman aquilifer, or the dragon standard of the Sarmatians. The latter would fly freely in the wind, carried by a horseman, similar to a kite. Beginning in the Middle Ages and later, flags were used primarily as a symbol of identity in battle, which made it easier to identify a knight than only from the heraldic symbol painted on the shield or tunic. The increasing use of flags during the high medieval period was gradually adopted by city states. During the Age of Sail, especially in the early 17th century, it was common (later a legal obligation) for ships to bear flags designating their nationality; these flags would eventually evolve into present-day national flags. Flags also became the preferred means to convey messages at sea. 

Use of flags outside of military or naval context begins only with the rise of nationalism at the end of the 18th century; the earliest have been dated to that period, and during the 19th century it became common for every sovereign state to have a national flag. We feature many iconic pirate flagsUS flags and US Civil War flags, plus many historical flags from various countries that are suitable for indoor or outdoor use. All of these are great for display, teaching, home use, or reenacting.

Review of: Napoleonic 1st Regiment Grenadier Flag

A nice replica flag of the Napoleonic Grenadier Guards. It lists the major campaigns of the unit on the reverse side and is a good piece of memorabilia for any period enthusiast. Looks great hanging in my military history home library. For the price, its a good buy. Getting a more authentically made silk and wool replica flag like this will cost you several hundred dollars so I'd take this one.

Review of: Napoleonic 1st Regiment Grenadier Flag

This is an excellent screen print version of the later (1812 )regimental flag. The material is silky in texture and the printing concise and clear. An excellent prop.

Review of: POW MIA Flag

Many times when I find a commemorative or reproduction of a flag I want, I am often disappointed by the material the flag is printed on.  They tend to be of very light nylon which looks great in a very slight breeze; but, the entire flag fails when it comes to continued use in windy conditions.  This POW-MIA flag is very well made and will withstand many years of my flying it on special occasions.
