7. Teutonic Banner which was led by Thomas Moerheym, vicetreasurer of the Order. He was killed in the battle together with most of his armored knights and servants, whom he led under the sign of his office.

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, in red, protrudes slightly in the finial position; sleeve continues the flag pattern. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to hang from a horizontal crossbar
