Znamierowski, 'The World Encyclopedia of Flags', 1999, shows several interesting flags of the Port Cities of northern Europe.  These are derived from gonfanons, originally red in color.  The flags, in a banner form, were flown from the stern of the vessels, the mast carrying the gonfanon of the colors. The flag of Elbląg (Elbing) dates from the 14th century.
