Description
Ancient Egyptian army standards, one with the head of a god, one with an ibis (sacred to Thoth, god of wisdom and writing), and one carried by a standard-bearer. Standards identified the different divisions of the army and let its commander see where they were on a battlefield. The cloth streamers tied beneath the images are the forerunner of what later became flags.
