This is a John Bapst High School Crusaders sports pennant done in purple and white, the school's colors. The words "Concordia Res Parvae Crescunt" (Unity is Strength) are positioned around a crest, and the letters "IHS" (Jesus, God, Savior) are in the middle of the crest at the junction of two crossed arrows. Students and fans often waved sports banners like this one to show support for the John Bapst teams.
