Web banners (also called banner ads) are a common form of advertising on the web. They are called this because, like real-world banners, they are usually in a high-aspect-ratio shape (narrow and tall, or short and wide).

Increasingly often they also use multimedia objects to play animations and sounds, employing technologies like Flash, Shockwave or Java, to attract attention.
