A few re-enactors' markets ago I bought the top section of processional cross (with a nice brass cross) with a brass tube section (to slot in the missing base) and a brass fitting to hang a banner horizontally.
In medieval ( and heraldic) terms this banner would be called a gonfalone.
I made a replacement base section for the pole and wood stained it to match the top.
As my character, the bishop, is a knight of the order of St Michael, I have now painted a suitable gonfalone.
This shows the saint and archangel as a warrior of Christ ,standing over the defeated Devil.
Once I have added suspension tabs and a backing I will post again, showing the gonfalone on its pole.
When completed, this will give me three types of flag outside my tent, as I already display a banner and a standard.
Until next time
