"16. Banner of the Komturia of Nieszawa [Nessau], led by Gottfried Hochfeld with brothers and hired help."

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 left hand; the pole tip protrudes slightly in the finial position; black sleeve.
