Whatever happened to flags?

I’ll be honest and say that these particular ones look a bit jank and short, but it is interesting to note their absence when they were front and centre in the early trailers. It always reminded me of that scene in Kingdom of Heaven, of armies banding together and preparing for battle.

Maybe I missed it, but has there been any comments on why they’re gone?

In my opinion, units look worse with the flags. So perhaps they removed them due to aesthetics

I don’t disagree, but I also think it could’ve easily looked better with some adjustment. For instance, making the flags longer as opposed to being short. I’ll say it does add some charm to the knights.

The key point is that the cavalry in the picture is from Mongolia, why should the Mongolian cavalry use the European style lance? The oriental lances were not like that at all.
And, of course I think it’s OK to add this flag to the lance of knight from England or some other European civs.
