baneret

baneret, or banneret
/baenarat/
In old English law, a knight made in the field, by the ceremony of cutting off the point of his standard, and making it, as it were, a banner. Knights so made were accounted so honorable that they were allowed to display their arms in the royal army, as barons did, and could bear arms with supporters. They were sometimes called "vexillarii." A degree of honor next after a baron's, when conferred by the king; otherwise, it ranks after a baronet. 1 Bl.Comm. 403
