History of Banners

HISTORY OF BANNERS MOSES (M1300 BCE) Banners were used as far back as the Old Testament. During the times of Moses, banners helped keep order among the people as they traveled across the desert to the Promised Land. Although some were made of heavily adorned materials, others were simply long wooden poles topped with ornaments ROMAN COAT OF ARMS (44BC – 1453AD) In ancient Rome, houses of nobility distinguished themselves by hanging banners with a coat of arms at the front entrance. HERALDIC BANNERS (STH – 15TH CENTURY) Coming in several shapes and sizes, including the oblong pennon, heraldic flags were used in the Middle Ages for personal identification. Knights used them to distinguish their prowess on the battlefield. As they advanced, they removed points of the pennon until it was reduced to a square form by which they were henceforth distinguished. SASHIMONO (1500s) During Japanese feudal times, Sashimono were worn by common soldiers as well as elite samurai to distinguish one another from enemies during intense battles. The sashimono poles were attached to the back of the chest armor by special fittings. PALIO DI SIENA (1656) In the Palio di Siena, a bareback horse race held twice a year in Italy, the winner is awarded a banner of painted silk, or palio, which is hand painted by a different artist for each race. During this ceremony, the enthusiasm is so extreme that there is the occasional outbreak of violence between rival contrades. TRADE UNION BANNERS (1840) In Britain, trade union banners have been used since the 1840s and can be counted in the hundreds during the May Day parades. Usually made of silk stretched taught over a wooden frame, these banners are used to represent local industries as well as depict optimistic visions of the future. - AERIAL ADVERTISING BANNERS (MID 1900s) Aerial banners are most commonly drug behind propeller aircraft because jet engines are too fast and require too much fuel to be efficient. Proponents of this form of advertising point to its ability to reach an otherwise isolated pocket of consumers, such as people at the beach or stuck in traffic. WEB BANNERS (1993-PRESENT) The first clickable online advertisement was sold by Global Network Navigator in 1993 to a now defuct law firm in Silicone Valley.
