69 曲礼上:
兵车不式。武车绥旌,德车结旌。史载笔,士载言。前有水,则载青旌。前有尘埃,则载鸣鸢。前有车骑,则载飞鸿。前有士师,则载虎皮。前有挚兽,则载貔貅。行:前朱鸟而后玄武,左青龙而右白虎。招摇在上,急缮其怒。进退有度,左右有局,各司其局。
Qu Li I:
A fighting chariot has no cross-board to assist its occupants in bowing; in a war chariot the banner is fully displayed; in a chariot of peace it is kept folded round the pole. A recorder should carry with him in his carriage his implements for writing; his, subordinates the (recorded) words (of former covenants and other documents). When there is water in front, the flag with the green bird on it should be displayed. When there is (a cloud of) dust in front, that with the screaming kites. For chariots and horsemen, that with wild geese in flight. For a body of troops, that with a tiger's (skin). For a beast of prey, that with a leopard's (skin). On the march the (banner with the) Red Bird should be in front; that with the Dark Warrior behind; that with the Azure Dragon on the left; and that with the White Tiger on the right; that with the Pointer of the Northern Bushel should be reared aloft (in the centre of the host) - all to excite and direct the fury (of the troops). There are rules for advancing and retreating; there are the various arrangements on the left and the right, each with its (proper) officer to look after it.
