The signum he carried was the military emblem of that unit. It comprised a number of philarae (disks ormedallions) along with a number of other elements mounted on a pole. The pole could be topped with a leaf-shaped spear head or a manus(open human hand) image denoting the oath of loyalty taken by the soldiers. It sometimes included a representation of a wreath, probably denoting an honour or award.
The task of carrying the signum in battle was dangerous as the soldier had to stand in the first rank and could carry only a small buckler. It was this banner that the men from each individual century would rally around. A soldier could also gain the position of discentes signiferorum, or standard bearer in training. If the signifer was lost in battle, the whole unit was dishonored.
