I would like to know about standard, too.

What would you say are the differences between the three words?


Banner is typically long and horizontal - you'd see it hung over a street, for instance, across the width of the street.

Flag is like a national flag, also rectangular, but closer to a square in proportion.

Standard is a triangular shape usually hung from bunting on a ship.
