rather than heraldic, in nature. The practice is documentable to
period as well as very common in the S.C.A.
The S.C.A. doesn't register single tinctures, including furs, so you
can hang a plain banner without fear of violating anyone's rights.
They can be very effective--pennons alternating the tinctures you've
chosen can give a whole encampment "punch", for example.
More elaborate banners are also fine, as long as they don't have a
heraldic look. (Technically, you can also hang banners that _do_ look
heraldic, but if you haven't put your design through the
conflict-checking process, you might accidentally display someone
else's registered device--a definite no-no.) Repeated floral or
geometric motifs, scenes from famous stories, allegorical scenes, and
overall decorative patterns are popular designs. Appliqué
