I was reading about Battle of Mohi between Mongol Empire and Kingdom of Hungary.
The Wikipedia contains this artistic depiction of the battle:
The cavalry on left hand looks like Mongols while presence of Knights on right hand side means those are the Magyar. You will notice the banner carried by knights contains a white crescent on a red plain field.
I know crescent was not originally associated with Islam or Muslim Empires in the East and might have actually been adopted by them from Byzantines who were neighbors of Hungarians. But by the time Battle of Mohi took place, crescent was
firmly associated with Muslims linked to Muslims since Crusades.
I have tried googling it but results generated are mostly about Hungarian confrontations with the Ottoman Empire due to keywords "Hungarian" & "Crescent" (Thanks alot Murad II & John Hunyadi). One lead me to a book but it only refers to crescent formation used by both sides in Battle of Mohi.
Anyhow, Why are the Hungarian Knights depicted in this picture holding a crescent banner? Did Hungarians ever go to battle bearing crescent banners in medieval era?
Wikipedia states however that this artwork is anonymous illustration so authenticity of the said image might be in question. But by putting the image through Google Image search, it seems this image is used to illustrate the said battle by a lot of sources.
