I had never noticed this sash (it is called "banner" in Heredis help). It appears only in the XXL family view on some individuals but not always.

Aparently iti used to mark that the person was marriied multiple times:
"If one of the ancestors of the primary person had multiple spouses, his/her box and his/her spouses’s are marked with a colored banner."

I am not quite sure about the logic by which this banner appears or not on a given person because I have noticed that the same person some time has it and some times does not have it. The same person can have this sash in different colours depending on who the primary person in the view is.

They seem to appear only on anscestors of the main person) who were married several times (not on descendants) and only if those other spouses are shown in the tree. If the other spouse do not appear on the tree, the sash is not displayed.
