A vassal of the Tokugawa family. Lord of the Yazaku domain in Shimofusa Province, lord of the Iwakidaira domain in Mutsu Province, and lord of the Yamagata domain in Dewa Province. During the Battle of Sekigahara, he served as a stay-at-home representative of Edo Castle by order of Ieyasu. The war banner has black background with a gold Shinto shrine archway. The general’s standard was the same design in near square shape. Another general’s standard was black Shinto shrine archway in white background in near square shape.

A "canting flag" and/or a "canting mon", so to speak, since the Japanese word for the Shinto shrine archway is /torii/.

As you say, the SHRINE ARCHWAY is a family emblem that implies the family name Torii. The II Naomasa family emblem, which means WELL, could also be called a canting kamon.
