Historical Period

standards were used in Roman legions from about 100 A.D. till 400 A.D. the Roman legion's standards were held high on poles. They were also important religious symbols, kept in a special shrine, scared to the gods, in the legion's fort or base camp. When the legion (about 5,000 soldiers)left camp, so did its gold standard as it was carried into battle at the head of the legion by Standard-bearers who wore a lion-skin or bear-skin headdress.
