The war banner was 7 black and 6 white horizontal stripes with a white butterfly topped with a black and white Maneki striped small streaming flag. The Ikeda family emblem, a butterfly, is a representative emblem of the Kanmu Heishi clan. It is said that Ikeda Nobuteru of the Bizen Okayama domain was favored by his father, Oda Nobuhide, and received the butterfly emblem while he was working as a partner of Oda Nobunaga.
