[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.]
"19. Banner of Komturia and Town of Elblag (Elbing). Led by Komtur Werner Thetinger, composed of brothers, knights and city-folk of Elbing and some hired help."
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; dark blue sleeve.
