Roamin' Around

While roaming around the castle grounds, the young princess lost her special treasures. Luckily, she remembers seeing them on the other side of the garden maze.

The secret path through the maze follows a special pattern that matches the princess' royal house banner. The royal house banner is a specific shape with a single colour, and the secret path through the maze is composed entirely of tiles of that same shape and/or colour.

What is the colour and shape of the princess' house banner, and what special treasures did she lose?

Starting from any tile on the left hand column, find the one path from start to finish. No diagonal moves allowed.
