They are correct, possibly not for as many as are shown wearing them in the sets
Bannerols, worn by commanders and Junior leaders (coningstavels) to identify them on the battlefield.

And here´s one showing a German Knight with a flag on his helmet from De arte athletica Tome II middle 16th Cent. Later than the Burgundians who wore them in battle not jousting but more contemporary than the two pics above.

The double pennant on both rider and horse looks really nice.
A something I have never noticed before. Thanks Paul. :thumbup:
