  • "I relaxed. The Shakespeare vexillographic canon would be complete.

    Interesting coinage, vexillology, 'the study of flags'. It dates only from the 1950s. The vexillum was a type of banner used by the Roman legions. It wasn't flown from the top of a pole, as modern flags are. Rather, its top side was fastened to a crossbar fixed across the top of a spear."

    By Hook or By Crook by David Crystal, p 168
