Flying Geese

Traditionally, Flying Geese blocks are twice as wide as they are tall.

You'll see those 2 x 1 proportions reflected in traditional Flying Geese blocks.

Even so, blocks and (especially) borders that use a wider or narrower center triangle are still called Flying Geese.

In fact, the block in the upper left corner of this page, which has non-traditional proportions, is one of the oldest ever published, in the Ladies Art Company catalog of 1897.
