Gonfalons originated as banners for medieval and Renaissance Italian communes. Bearing symbols, logos, slogans or other messages, they were (and still are) used in ceremonial processions. Their graphic design, as an art form applied in daily life, uses collective signs and symbols as a language, and has a ceremonial function. In this workshop, students selected someone special to honor, dedicated and designed their gonfalons, suspended them from a crossbar on a pole, and waved them in a procession.
