While in New Orleans, when I could get a break from an intensive study of the foodways of the region (and shopping to fit out our daughter’s apartment), I popped into the Cathedral-Basilica of St. Louis King of France on Jackson Square, and found a striking display of flags emblazoned with the arms of the archdiocese, the basilica itself, and the suffragan sees of the Province of New Orleans.  (They hang from the front of the balcony on the southwest side of the nave; the opposite balcony displays historic flags that have flown over Louisiana.)

And banners of the suffragan dioceses:
