In the 12th century with the introduction of the pot helmet, the individual knight could no longer be recognized by his face, and another means of identification became necessary. Therefore their shields were painted in boldly contrasting colours and in particular the crusaders choose a cross as their emblem.

We are offering a reenactors' copy of such a shield in white colour with a red cross, the most common crusaders' sign.

Shield dimensions:
68 cms.(27") x 49 cms.(19")
weight: 1.9 kgs.(4.2 lbs.)

These shields are made from plywood (9 mm / 0.4") lined with linen. 2 strong leather straps are fitted on the back as to be seen on our right photo.
