We can trace back the history of banners from the time of the prophet Isaiah when he was commanded to raise a banner and exalt his voice (Isaiah 13:2). A banner is defined as a piece of flag that bears a logo or message, and banner-making is the ancient craft for creating banners.
Aside from proclaiming religious messages, it was also used to display the coat of arms of feudal lords and knights in the mid-12th century battlefields. This was their way to identify allies from enemies. They call it heraldic banner, or banner of arms.
In the 1840s, trade union banners rose to popularity in Britain. Laborers used banners to negotiate their terms with their employers. They used banners to air their grievances and dismay to the management, to ask for additional benefits and offer possible solutions to their problems. Today, banners are very dominant in political rallies and parades.
We can say that banners has really come a long way and it continues to become more flexible and useful for companies, most especially. The advertising industry has completely embraced the use of banners, vinyl banners in particular, to make outdoor displays. Vinyl is a cheap, yet durable material that can make a banner withstand any weather condition and last up to 5 years. It is easy to maintain and very cost-effective.
