Append a triangle svg to a rectangle svg?

I've made a rectangle to be a banner, and I'd like to add an triangle to the left of that rectangle in order to make an arrow.

How could I make, position a triangle or create an element that resembles both of the elements merged, solely with svg?

Just adding a simple polygon element with three points and then grouping the rectangle and polygon together in a g element should do the trick.

Take a look at this jsbin and mess around with it.
