[Editor's note: the following translation by Chrystian Kretowicz of the Banderia Prutenorum manuscript is based on a translation from Latin into Old Polish, available at the Choragwie Pruskie cz. 1 - Jan Dlugosz webpage.]
"17. Banner of the knights from Westphalia. They came to help the Order on their own [initiative] and at their own cost, that is why they wanted to fight under their own banner. Note: this Banner is 2 and 1/4 cubits long and 2 cubits wide."
[Editor's note: about 112 cm × 100 cm.]
Chrystian Kretowicz, 2 June 2001
The original image shows the flag hanging vertically (hoist in the top of the picture) and a wodden pole is visible at the viewer's right hand (my image being thus a supposed backside); no finial; white sleeve. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to hang from a horizontal crossbar.
