Greetings.
I humbly present my first release of anything on this forum. I'm a huge fan of crusaders, and after going through different movies and doing some research, I've made 20 Crusader banners that you can either use for your modules (though I want credit for the banners) or for your own personal use in Singleplayer. They are in BMP format, and can be added to your .dds files by using a program like Paint.net

UPDATE 08.01.11: Added three new Crusader Banners (Order of St. Lazarus, Red Maltese and Sovereign Military Order of Malta) and five new Saracen Banners (Abbasid, Almohad, Ayyubid, Fatimid and Marinid)

UPDATE 24.03.11: Added two new banners for the Knights Templars, using the Hospitaller and Hospitaller Cross banners I previously made, and then changing the background to white, and crosses to red.


Unfortunately I haven't uploaded any pictures of the new banners yet, you may do so if you wish.



The banners:

I've made the banners for following factions:
Armenia: 1 banner
Byzantine Empire: 2 banners
Castile: 1 banner
Holy Roman Empire: 1 banner
Knights Hospitallers: 3 banners
Ibelin: 1 banner
Kingdom of Jerusalem: 2 banners
Knights Templars: 5 banners
Lower Lorraine: 1 banner
Order of Christ: 1 banner
Teutonic knights: 3 banners
Toulouse: 1 banner
Order of St. Lazarus: 1 banner
Malta: 2 banners
Saracen: 5 banners

They are all in good, high resolution so it'll look good in the game,
and almost all of the banners are tested in game so they'll look as realistic to the real thing as possible.
If you have any suggestion for new banners, or any improvements to the old banners, please do share.
I might make more banners in the future, if I have some spare time.
Enjoy.

Feel free to leave comments. Always good to know what to improve for next time, or new suggestions for new banners.

Some of the banners are very bright, maybe you should tone them down. Anyway, nice banners.

Oooh coolies, these are great (I especially like the first and fourteenth one...) although eye wateringly bright on my LCD monitor. Maybe make then less bright in future versions?

Like they said -> Such bright colours don't look good or realistic on flags.
They are awesome though, friggin' saved!

Hi! These banners look awesome, but I'm not too sure on how to get them in my game. Could somebody tell me how? I'm new at all of this stuff, so sorry.

Im not seeing the Knights Templar banner.

It's suppose to be half black over white

If you speak for me, I am owner of M&B and WarBand but don't mean it's okay to said bad word, it's bad word are a bad for your mind. It's may filling bad wicked in your mind, nothing good out of your mind but a bitter.
AG's mental process is a rare one that most people consider alien, and therefor wrong.

Nice work Anardion :) If someone can incorporate into say the Better Banner mod by MarkQuinn, to put all the fan made banners into one place?
You have been bested in this melee, but the master of ceremonies declares a recognition of your skill and bravery, allowing you to take part in the next round.

To use it, just download it and copy the textures into your Mount&Blade Warband\Textures and overwrite the existing ones. (i would make a back up of these first)

And also, the Templar banner is the white with a red cross.  Now, i am not denying that there might be other banners the Templars used, but that is one they used, and it is in the pack.
