      The striking piece is the steel in flint and steel. It's use as a badge started with Phillip the Good (IIRC).

      What is a "striking piece"? I had read that many of the guilds were under their protection.

      Jon,
       
      That is not a crown. That is a striking piece which was the badge of the Dukes of Burgandry. Its presence indicate that the archers/crossbow guild is under the protection and with a charter from the Dukes.

      Note the banner on the inn with two arrows crossed within a crown.

      Trying again as an attachment. 
      If the attachment does not show up, ignore this.  

      Period etching by Brueghel showing a scene somewhat like you described.
