[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.]
"21. Banner of the Komturia and Town of Brodnica (Strasburg), led by Baldemin Stoll, brothers and hired help. Note: banner is 2 cubits minus a quarter [i.e. 1.75 cubits] long, 1 and 1/2 cubits wide."
[Editor's note: about 87 cm × 75 cm.]

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. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to be flown with the hoist at the bottom, which is unsuitable for typical wind (and gravity!) conditions.
