Ally Banner Video -
The banner video seems to be showing the penants on the npcs back... those are not the banners, the things on the ground next to each city area with the faction icons are the banners... you plant them on the ground not on your back... so no you can't use them to confuse horde or whatever... its just another toy for flavor like the shirts and tabards...
For clarity, this is a banner that you summon and set on the ground. Think of it like a racially proud Archmage Vargoth.
This item provides no combat bonus.
This item is permanent.
It can be used anywhere. Indoor/Out.
If you can't decide if you want it or not, a few things to think about...
It's the only vanity item you can purchase on your first day as champion
(for MOST people...some people might get lucky with a wonky server reset).
Take it for a test run. Don't forget, in 3.1 you can sell back your item to get the marks back from it. If you decide you don't like it, sell it back and get back your fifteen champion's seals.
Also of note is that all of the banners, when planted, last for the entirety of their cooldown (Aka: 3 minutes). Might be funny to plant this on Thrall's corpse in a
STORMWIND WAZ HEAR
The banner is very large; it's the same model as the Stormwind banner in the nearby Alliance Valiants' Ring. Assuming the other banners follow the same pattern, these can be a very nice addition to your next guild kill-shot.
does this item have Charges? like for example if you use it, it loses 1 charge untill it reaches 0 charges and it disapears like some items ?
They should allow you to have GUILD Banners. It'd be easy enough to code it. Plant the banner, and your guild's symbol is on it, just like on your tabard.
Can you IMAGINE the mess a guild banner system would make of Stormwind? Or Dalaran? Lagaran indeed. it WOULD be cool, but at the cost of lag from hell in already crowded, laggy spaces.
The Stormwind banner looks awesome...
Nothing like sticking this into a dead Blood Elf Male who's been trying to kill your Auctioneers.
As of patch 4.0.3, the tooltip reads:

It's currently glitched. It may say it's a Stormwind banner, but when you use it you'll end up planting a Darnassus banner.
OK! update.. they fixed the banners. they now read.. AND PLACE the proper races banner.. many night elf tailors were severly scolded after their tricks.. and the human tailors were released from the broom closet(where the elves had trapped them) when a mage was found with them, and questioned "why didnt you port them out?" 'they claim they were tired and didnt wish to be forced into creating the King's statue"
edit: The above claim made by the mage was later removed after the "Stormwind Tailors and Fishing Union" threatened to open a few lawsuits against the mage for such outrageous claims.. and they wish to inform us all that "All of our workers enjoyed making such a magnificent statue of our beloved king"
There should've been a Lordaeron Banner or a Argent Crusade Banner!
Arget Crusader's Banner

Is it still possible to get the Champion Seals to purchase this item?
This item, (along with the other faction banners from the Argent Tournament) is now considered a Toy in Warlords of Draenor and can be summoned from the Toy collection pane by any of your (Alliance) characters, once learned. There are no tournament requirements for an alt to be able to use this item once collected.
Learning the Stormwind Banner will give you credit for the Orgrimmar Banner toy as well.
If you purchase this and add it to your toy collection, you also get the other faction's counterpart. Double toy-age!
