Nobori Warrior Flags
A variety of banners, flags, fans, and batons were tools used on the battlefield in feudal Japan to communicate military directions or to provide clan identification. Banners came in a variety of forms, and were worn or carried to represent a particular warrior or group of warriors. Stop by the exploring exhibitions station in the Martin ArtQuest Gallery to create a banner to represent you and your own group of samurai warriors. This activity is presented in conjunction with the Samurai: The Way of the Warrior exhibition at the Frist Center on view from November 4, 2016 through January 16, 2017.
