'Flag' in the Bible
The children of Israel are to put up their tents, every man in his tent-circle round his flag.
Those whose tents are on the east side, looking to the dawn, will be round the flag of the children of Judah, with Nahshon, the son of Amminadab, as their chief.
On the south side is the flag of the children of Reuben, in the order of their armies, with Elizur, the son of Shedeur, as their chief.
Then the Tent of meeting is to go forward, with the tents of the Levites, in the middle of the armies; in the same order as their tents are placed, they are to go forward, every man under his flag.
On the west side will be the flag of the children of Ephraim, with Elishama, the son of Ammihud, as their chief.
On the north side will be the flag of the children of Dan, with Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai, as their chief.
First the flag of the children of Judah went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Nahshon, the son of Amminadab.

And the flag of the children of Dan, whose tents were moved last of all, went forward with their armies: and at the head of his army was Ahiezer, the son of Ammishaddai.
