"Vaandel" is related to German "Fahne".
Jan Mertens, Oct 2007

While true, it’s more that "vaandel" derives from "vendel", which was a diminutive form of "vaan". "Vaan", then is related to "Fahne" in German.

The word "vendel" is now usually replaced by "vaandel", but it does still occur on occasion.

Remarks:
seldom use

Seldom used is "vaan"; plural "vanen".
Jan Mertens, Oct 2007

Diminutive of "vaan" is "vaandeltje". "Vendel" (no longer in use with a flag meaning) was a diminutive form of "vaan"; "vaandel" derives from "vendel". "Vaan", then is related to "Fahne" in German. What is still in use in Dutch is the diminutive of "vaan": "vaantje", which more or less translates to pennant, in the sense of a sports pennant.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 24 Oct 2007

"Vaan" is related to "Fahne" in German and "vane" in English: All of them eventually come from Germanic either "gundfano" ("gund-fano" = "war-cloth", which one would expect to be related to "gonfanon" / "gonfalon" somehow), or directly from "fano", "cloth". In Old-Frisian this was "fona", hence the modern Sealtersk "Foone" and Frasch "foone".
