History

Named for Ivan Ivanovich Banner, Danish-born Russian American Company agent at Kodiak (1804-16); published as "bannerskaia baie" by Captain Lutke (1836, p. 314), Imperial Russian Navy (IRN). Lutke also described it as an arm of "Bukhta Gloubokaia," meaning "Deep Bay." This name was published in 1848 on Russian Hydrographic Dept. Chart 1400, while, on the same chart, "Gav(an) Banera," or "Baner Harbor" was applied to a smaller bay, 3.5 mi. to the southwest.
