Historically speaking, the flag or banner
derives from totemistic insignia as found
and, indeed, in most countries. The Persians carried gilded eagles
with outstretched wings
of long poles; the Medes, three crowns; the Parthians, a swordblade; the Greeks and Romans had signa, standards and banners.
The important point about all these symbols is not the kind of figure used, but the fact that it is always placed at the top of a pole or mast. This raised position is expressive of a kind of imperious exaltation, or the will to ‘heighten’ the spiritual significance of the figure or animal by raising it above the normal level. From this is derived the general symbolism of the banner as a sign of victory and self-assertion.
