Things of Middle-earth
Banner of the Elves, The
Description:It was the day before Midsummer when messengers came ... and they said that there was a riding of fair folk out of the North.... And the King said: 'At last they have come. Let all the City be made ready!'
Upon the very Eve of Midsummer ... the riders came down the North-way to the gates of Minas Tirith. First rode Elrohir and Elladan with a banner of silver, and then came Glorfindel and Erestor and all the household of Rivendell, and after them came the Lady Galadriel and Celeborn, Lord of Lothlórien, riding upon white steeds and with them many fair folk of their land, grey-cloaked with white gems in their hair; and last came Master Elrond, mighty among Elves and Men, bearing the sceptre of Annúminas, and beside him upon a grey palfrey rode Arwen his daughter, Evenstar of her people.
