Overview

In Danish, we use "flag" about cloth flown from flag poles or masts, and "fane" about procession flags or military (or other) colours. But some of the cloth that we fly from flag poles are pennants, and they are not really flags either. We use the term "vimpel". In some naval contexts, "stander" is used instead of "vimpel". A stander is usually shorter than a vimpel. Now, some of our flag (plural = singular) are swallow-tailed, splitflag. If they are rectangular instead, we use the term stutflag.
