On this page:
Please note with regard to 1), an example of a banner of arms is that of the Canadian province of New Brunswick, which should not be confused with a plain flag bearing those arms on a shield in its centre as on the flag of Alberta (see armorial flag), or with the separately described heraldic standard (see also the illustration under heraldic standard and standard 4)). Also, that the most common heraldic terms used in describing a banner of arms are listed separately herein; however, it is suggested that suitable a glossary or heraldic dictionary be consulted for further details.

With regard to 2), it should be also be noted that the Editors have adopted strict German vexillogical practice in that they have drawn a precisely defined distinction between a hanging flag and a banner, with such differences lying in both the method of suspension and in the orientation of the stripes, please note also however, that this may not necessarily apply in all cases.
