Description: Flag of the Grand Master of the Teutonic Order

Similar to the flag of the Order except that the cross is gold, fimbriated black and it is a cross potent, i.e. it has rectangular feet at each end. At the point where the arms cross, a shield with the Imperial Arms; black eagle on gold field. Frequently shown with the fly half of the flag cut into three "ribbons" (up to center). Occasionally, but rarely, the cross is shown as a St. George type (as in the flag of England). Illustrated in Smith 1975, p. 115.

The following is a translation of the Banderia Prutenorum manuscript from the Choragwie Pruskie cz. 1 - Jan Dlugosz website: The "Great Banner of the Master of the Teutonic Order. Under the leadership of Grand Master Ulrich von Juningen were there most illustrious knights and aristocrats. His tunic, in which he was killed, was made out of the finest Arras textile. Presently, that clothing is in possession of the parochial church in Kije. (Note: The banner is 3 cubits long, 2 and 1/4 cubits wide - about 150 cm × 112 cm.).

From the Teutonic Banners at Tannenberg webpage: The "Great Banner of the Grand Master. A Gonfalon banner measuring some 180 cm by 135 cm. Used at Tannenberg as the standard for Hochmeister Von Juningen and his Squadron. The crown on the Eagle was supposedly granted to Grand Master Von Salza by Frederick II, the Holy Roman Emperor. "

The following is a translation from the Banderia Prutenorum manuscript, based on a initial translation from Latin into Old Polish, available at the Choragwie Pruskie cz. 1 - Jan Dlugosz website: The " Banner of the Master of Teutonic Order (smaller) under which served the most famous Teutonic knights and also, heavily-armored knights who came from Germany and other lands. Some of the servants of the Grand Master and members of his court served in this unit as well. (Note: Smaller Banner or Pursuit Banner is a cubit and a quarter long, only one cubit wide - about 62 cm × 50 cm.)"

The original image shows the flag hanging vertically (hoist in the top of the picture) and a wooden pole is visible at the viewer's right hand (my image being thus a supposed backside); no finial; white sleeve. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to hang from a horizontal crossbar.

From the Teutonic Banners at Tannenberg webpage: " Lesser Banner of the Grand Master. Smaller than the Greater Banner but otherwise identical. Used as the standard of the Vanguard of the army. Often used to lead the charge of the army. This standard has been depicted without the Crown of the Greater as there is some doubt to whether it was used on both. "
