The original image shows the flag hanging vertically (hoist in the top of the picture) and a wodden pole is visible at the viewer's right hand (my image being thus a supposed backside); no finial; white sleeve.

From the Teutonic Banners at Tannenberg webpage: "Grand Komturia. The standard of the Grosskomtur. The Grosskomtur's banner [a military unit size] comprised mostly of hired Knights from Austria along with some Brethren."
