History of Flags
Flags have been used for thousands of years to assist military coordination on battlefields. Flags have since become used for far more purposes including signalling, identification, and showing pride. National flags are potent patriotic symbols with varied wide-ranging interpretations. The study of flags is known as vexillology, from the Latin vexillum meaning flag or banner. In antiquity, field signs also known as standards were used in warfare. Examples include the Achaemenid battle standard Derafsh Kaviani, and the standards of the Roman legions such as the eagle of Augustus Caesar's Xth legion. Standards were used to identify armies, squads and troop types. These battle flags were extremely important in warfare.
