Link's orginal Coat of Arms from "The Legend of Zelda" and armorial banner - 1986
The heraldic armoroial banner is essentially a flag based upon the design of a knight's shield. In this game Link's original shield did not consist of the Triforce, rather a lighter brown cross on darker brown background was the original design.
Here is the appropriate armorial banner for the shield of arms. During game play, Link starts off with a smaller shield but he can get a bigger one, and the colours are the same.
Eventually Link can get a magical shield which has the same design but the cross is a slightly lighter brown, and almost white.
