    Very tricksy, this hobbitses is!

    This really confused me because the standard borne by the Grey Company is revealed as the White tree with the crown and the seven stars, when it is unfurled at Harlond during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. But we are talking about the same banner, unfurled earlier at the Stone of Erech. The answer is something along the lines of: “What did Halbarad do at the Stone or Erech?”

    “And with that he bade Halbarad unfurl the great standard which he had brought; and behold! it was black, and if there was any device upon it, it was hidden in the darkness. Then there was silence, and not a whisper nor a sigh was heard again all the long night. The Company camped beside the Stone, but they slept little, because of the dread of the Shadows that hedged them round.”

    The Lord of the Rings
    J. R. R. Tolkien

    You have the Jacket!

    I am a bit confused by your confusion.
    The original riddle: This person unfurled a blank standard.
    The answer: Who is Halbarad?
    ............................ missed a putt.........................At a Dead & Co. show on a Mexican beach............ another Dead & Co. show at the same beach a year later

    The confusion was because the first person I thought of was Halbarad, but then I thought “wait, the standard bears the tree, stars and crowns.” Your riddle was very tricksy because it was the same standard, but under different conditions. Nice riddle sir!


    Anyway, I digress. Next one:

    No attempts at this one after 3 days, it may be time for a clue.

    This is the name of a man who was alive during the War of the Ring, and whose name can be arrived at by simple word association.
