Seen from the early Middle Ages forward, Turret Banners were a common way to establish links between Kingdoms. Unlike The Streamer, Turret Banners were much longer and larger (so they could be seen at a greater distance). Mounted on the top portion of a defensive Tower, they most often did not include icons or imagery. Colors and their combinations were most employed. Typically, Turret Banners could be anywhere from 15 to 45 feet long and as wide as 4 to 5 feet. In addition to identifying alliances, they could be used to identify Nobility and Royalty (again using color combinations). With the decline of Castles and their importance in warfare, so did the use of The Turret Banner.
