Before I respond, can you answer a few questions?

* What exactly do you mean by "banner"?  (is it swallow-tailed?
  does it go on a horizontal or a vertical staff?  etc)

* What color is the banner?

* What are the blazons of the four badges?

* How are the badges arranged?

* If your badge is returned by Laurel, can you remove it from
  the banner?

* What exactly does the documentation say?

* What is it about your persona that clashes with 25 foot banners?

* What is a motteggiatore?

* What are the chances that your status will change at Crown?

* Would such a change in status remove the banner-length problem?

levate signum          | Lift ye up a banner
super montem caligosum | upon the high mountain,
exaltate vocem         | exalt the voice unto them,
levate manum           | shake the hand,
et ingrediantur        | that they may go into
portas duces           | the gates of the nobles.
