The “War Flag” of Lithuania can trace it's origins to The Battle of Grunwald (1410). It was documented that of the 40 Regiments present for battle, all carried a red pennant banner (semi-swallow), with a mounted image of a Knight charging into battle. The Banner, known as The Vytis was the National Flag of Lithuania until the end of the 18th Century (and their subsequent annexation into Imperial Russia).
