Senatus Populusque Romanus

I was aware that there are Roman reënactors out there - I once happened upon a site explaining how to make your own legionary shield - and so was not entirely surprised to find that someone out there is selling legionary banners. What did surprise me was hearing from the shop owner that they're big sellers. It's just a small shop in Pittsburgh's South Hills, and the flags are locally made by some guy, but I guess it's the miracle of the internet - they're the #2 hit when you Google "Roman legionary banner".
