"come out regiment... and pod"yasha banner "(Ipat'evskaya chronicle). The value of banner in the Old-Russian armys is enormous. The army was constructed before beginning battle around the banner in the battle formation; when battle was decomposed into a number of the separate hand-to-hand of struggles, banner served for the soldiers as orientator, place of collection, as indicator of progress of combat. If enemy "dosekoshasya to the banner and the banner of podsekosha", this indicated defeat, and this unavoidably followed flight troops. Therefore in the mezhduknyazheskikh wars toward the mastery of princely banner was sent all efforts of the rivals: the fate of banner solved the fate of battle, and around it was developed most severe secha. The emblem of prince initially was weighed on the banner; toward the end OF THE XIV century on the banners they begin to place the means Of iisusa. "... I ordered the sovereign of kherugvi khristian'skye to rozvertiti, to sirech' banner, on them means gentlemen our Iisusa Christ" (Nikonovskaya chronicle about the Kulikovo battle). Approximately at the same time into use comes term - banner ". Both names - "banner" and "banner" to THE XVII century exist in parallel; in THE XVII century the word "banner" no longer is encountered. In THE XVI century the banner was already in each regiment ("large banner"); in hundred, into which were divided the regiments, were "smaller banners".
Banners complained by tsar to Donskoy and Zaporozhskiy to army, revealed to the governors for the march and for the service, were sent into Astrakhan to princes by Cherkass. Banners were differed from each other in the merit, symbolizing the degree of the importance of their carrier.
