Default Banners

Hey guys, i have looked hard in my codex (Black templars) but i cant seem to find anyone who can wear banners.
The only people that can is the HQ Command squad, so does that mean for:

Chapter Banner (Standard Bearer Only)
Holy Relic (Reclusiam Bearer Only)
Sacred Standard (Standard Bearer Only)

To equip any of them they need to be held by one of the HQ command squad?
The reason i am asking is because in my marine box i got a Flag, however in the codex it doesn't give me the option to have a flag bearer on a marine so i am guessing its different then a bearer?

Help~

Nope, standard bearers are only for the command squad. The command squad is your commander's best troops, his chosen warriors. It only makes sense they would carry the chapter standard. Therefore, if you want to use the standard you must include it in a command squad for your Marshal or Chaplain. Normal Marines do not get the option to take banners.

The banner that comes with the tactical squad is generally put on the sergeant so the squad can be named(I attach it to the back of the Sergeant's power pack for stability).

I think that's what he was asking about Sionnach......

Chapter and company banners are large banners that are usually carried in one hand by a member of a command squad. They are obvious, and have special rules in the game.

Many space marine boxes also come with smaller banners that can be mounted directly onto theback of a marines backpack. These have no in game rules, they're there purely to look cool, any marine can have one, though typically they are used to mark out sergeants and commanders.

ah ty
Also i noticed in my codex:
If i use Chaplain grimaldus he counts as having a holy relic as long as one of his servitors r alive?
NOTE: that this does not exclude the standard bearer in his reclusiam command squad form aslo holding a holy relic, does that mean i can have 2 holy relics in my army?

Metal fans are allowed to use stereotyped generalisations of other types of music. Why? Because the "avatar" of Rap and similar music is a binged up black guy who holds his gun in such a way as he will probably shoot his own foot off in a gunfight. The avatar of Metal is a bearded, unwashed Scandinavian guy who kills you, your family, your town, your country and the neighbouring country because there isn't much else to do up in the snowy fjords of Vikingland.

The command squad box comes with one but they aren't too hard to make.

Thanks
