Some possibly useful links for this Geste!



http://www.cs.vassar.edu/~capriest/display.html   (early period display,
pre-heraldic period)


http://www.merouda.com/asheraldry/asintro.htm   (not specifically about
banners, but good to read to get ideas, as TRH would like to see our arms
out there as well!!!)

http://www.heraldry-scotland.co.uk/flyingherald.html  -- modern and
historical usage and examples

http://donna.hrynkiw.net/sca/flags/f011.html -- a representation of passing
over a banner from a king to a general.... *sniff*


And really, that's probably more than enough, as I'm sure we all have The
Google habit!
