Pennants have been historically used in all types of athletic levels: high school, collegiate, professional etc. Traditionally, pennants were made of felt and fashioned in the official colors of a particular team.

A professional is a member of a profession or any person who earns their living from a specified professional activity.

Felt is a textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibres together.

Often graphics, usually the mascot symbol, as well as the team name were displayed on pennants.

A mascot is any person, animal, or object thought to bring luck, or anything used to represent a group with a common public identity, such as a school, professional sports team, society, military unit, or brand name.

The images displayed on pennants were either stitched on with contrasting colored felt or had screen-printing.

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.

Today, vintage pennants with rare images or honoring special victories have become prized collectibles for sporting enthusiasts.

A collectable is any object regarded as being of value or interest to a collector.

While pennants are typically associated with athletic teams, pennants have also been made to honor institutions and vacation spots, often acting as souvenirs.

A souvenir, memento, keepsake, or token of remembrance is an object a person acquires for the memories the owner associates with it.
