Does anyone have any sources that show the use of lance pennants?

Thanks in advance.

Only a couple of lance pennants in the last link but might give you a start

A standard in a museum

Flags etc about 2/3 the way down the page

Some of the colored drawings on here come from the 2.500 anniv celebration book there are other cavalry and Infantry banners and flags on drawings in that for no only the Safavids but also other periods.

This link has more of them from the book

The colors in the book are a little better than the copis here

Hope that helps

There are some books also with these types of pictures that have some pennants as well

I just used plain pennants on my army. Not quite as impressive as multi-coloured, but they look fine. The paper I used was a kids' pack of origami paper; cheap, and with lots of different colours to choose from.
