English

From Middle English, from the Old French estandart (gathering place, battle flag), from Old Frankish *standhard (literally stand firm, stand hard), equivalent to stand + -ard. Alternative etymology derives the second element from Old Frankish *ord (point, spot, place) (compare Old English ord (point, source, vanguard), German Standort (location, place, site, position, base, literally standing-point)). More at stand, hard, ord.
