It is a distinguishing token, emblem, or badge.  In this context, it simply a populace badge.

Dorcas,

Can you tell me the definition of an ensign. please?  I know of the word, but don't know the definition.

Thanks,
Hertha

The ensign of Calontir is:  Purpure, a cross of Calatrava Or.  It may be worn or displayed by any populace member.   It is not the same as the badge of the Order of the Calon Cross.

Nest,

The Calon Cross (AKA gold colored cross calatrava on a purple field) is the badge of a specific Calontir Grant of Arms level award.  Will you be making those particular tabards for  people who are members of that order?  It might be a good idea to consult with your group's Herald regarding who may wear which symbols. 

The on-line Order of Precedence might be a good site for you to consult, as well.

I am getting ready to make tabards for GW and want to put a falcon on
one side and the Calon Cross on the other.   I found the falcon images
to download, but where can I find one of the Calon Cross?
