About The Black and Gold Banneret

Welcome to The Black and Gold Banneret!

With the Black and Gold Banneret, we aim to not only cover the big sports and stories, and engage in some fun stuff every now and then, but also to cover the lesser-known or heralded sports at UCF, because that’s where to good stories are. We value being right over being first, so we’re not going to be first a lot. But we will tell you why things happen, and we hope to show you the inside workings behind that. You’re not always going to like what we write, but we can tell you it’s as straightforward and honest as you’re going to get anywhere.

What’s a Banneret?

A knight banneret was a medieval knight who fought and led his army under his own banner or flag. A banneret was traditionally ranked higher than a knight bachelor, who was a knight who fought under someone else’s flag, like a mercenary, but he was not a member of the nobility. Typically, a knight banneret received his title for valor on the battlefield.

That’s what we hope this website represents: We cover UCF under our own flag – not for someone else.
