    'Charging up and Flying?'

    Hello,

    Could you tell me please what 'charging up' means here in this sentence and to what 'flying' refers to?

    ''Then suddenly, a knight on a white horse with colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword....

    "Charging up" means arriving at speed. "Colours flying" means his flag fluttering in the air.

    No, it's unlikely.
