Piece of cloth or similar material displaying the insignia of a community, an armed service, an office, or an individual. It is usually oblong and attached by one edge to a staff or halyard. Originally used in warfare, it was a sign of leadership, serving as identification of friend or foe. The flag was invented in ancient India or China, and its use spread to Burma, Siam, and S.E. Asia.

In Europe, where national flags first appeared in the Middle Ages, they became accepted symbols of nations, kings, organizations, cities, and guilds.
