Banner keep (noun) a stronghold established by a City in a location other than that City, where preference or exclusive rights are accorded to the merchants and citizens of the city under whose banner the keep is established and administered. Often the city under whose banner the keep is established will maintain a garrison there; otherwise the establishing city arranges with the city where the keep is to provide for defense. (See also free keep).

In a banner keep, or one maintained by a given city, preference, if not exclusive rights, are accorded to the merchants and citizens of the city under whose banner the keep is established and administered. That the keep was also under the shield of Tuna meant that it was defended by Turians, that its garrison was Turian. Sometimes a keep will fly a given banner but its garrison will be furnished by the city within whose territory it lies. It is not unknown for a keep to fly the banner of one city and stand behind the shield of another.
