From it's Medieval meaning, Streamers were small (and often long) pieces of cloth or silk – used to determine the allegiance of Troops aboard Medieval ships. They bore no motto or fringe. Often, they were solid colors. Streamers could range from 5 feet to 20 feet long. Even with the development of Ensigns and Standards, often Streamers were still incorporated. By example, Streamers are still used today in a slightly different fashion. In Most American Armed Forces, each Service “Flag” carries “Battle Streamers” These colored pieces of cloth often had the particular name of the Battle or War that that particular Service participated in. The “color” is often associated with the particular “conflict” (e.g. Blue and Gray – Civil War, Black and Red – Indian Wars, Green and Yellow – Vietnam War).
