Illustration of the Battle of Yarmouk (636) at the bottom of the page of an early 14th Century CE manuscript. The forces of the Rashidun Caliphate are shown with a star and crescent banner, while the Byzantines are depicted with a star banner. The Byzantines are also anachronistically depicted wearing Crusader-era armor. (Note that the banner designs are not attributed to factions with any consistency by this illustrator of this manuscript).

BNF Nouvelle acquisition francaise 886 fol. 9v. c. 1310 - 1325 CE. From the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
